A new Fatti Frances demo, presumably from a forthcoming release. If you listened to her 12 inch from last year, you’ll remember a fondness for grainy basslines sitting just shy of distortion. On ‘So Bad’, Frances has pulled that element back, resulting in something a lot quieter and 4am-esque. The restless percussion suggests some kind of inevitable, sinister culmination, but nothing of the sort eventuates: it’s all the more dramatic for teasing that expectation out.
There’s an undeniable tension here. The jagged, less celebratory facets of desire: anxiety, sleeplessness. Staring out the window with the lights out, a stiff silhouette on the corner staring back.
