Press For Frances
Prefix Magazine 8.5/10 : “All The While nails its grand aesthetic. It never descends to the pomposity of similar artists like the Divine Comedy, but still forges a friendly marriage between accessibility and mystery. Call it “chamber pop” or just call it like it is: a phenomenal debut album.”
Amplifier Magazine : “With debut album All the While, Frances pieces together an elegant and sophisticated creation, with strings, keyboards, xylophones, and various other exciting little bits of sound coming tog ether to make a unique and delightful pop style.”
Flavorpill : Stuffing his album full of horns, strings, and triumphant choruses, Hogan evokes wonder and earnestness
through complicated melodies and exotic, bookish narratives.
Time Out NY : “FRANCES has a winning way of penning straight-up chamber-pop tunes”
Pitchfork Media (“Kettle” Song Review): “The orchestrations are sophisticated and complex, far more than your average window dressing, and as an opening shot, the EP this is drawn from is quite a statement. I can’t wait to hear the LP.”
Der Spiegel : “Frighteningly good”
It’s been said that to write a decent pop song, all you need is three chords and the truth. But as pop music’s brief history has shown, things aren’t always that simple. Sometimes you need to smudge the truth a little to get your point across; sometimes you need more than three chords. And sometimes you need a glockenspiel, a Suzuki Omnichord, and a Tennessee high school marching band.
Frances is Stephanie Skaff (vocals, sundries), Brian Betancourt (guitar, sundries), Nick Anderson (bass), Julia Tepper (vocals, violin, sundries), Tlacael Esparza (drums), and Paul Hogan (vocals, keyboards)
