Last year was phenomenal for the charismatic rapper that resides in a small English town called Thetford, seeing him support Rudimental and Chase and Status, as well as completing a busy festival period that included the BBC Radio 1Xtra stage at Reading & Leeds festival. His recent releases have seen him gain further kudos for their sonic refreshment as heard in ‘Only’ and ‘Tell Me A Word’.
Taking you back to the days of old school garage raves, Reebok Classics and gold chains, Franko Fraize reveals the retro visuals to his latest single ‘Lines’, alongside Great Skies. The blurry video captures the bright lights of London’s skylines and the essence of the night life that used to fill the city, while perfectly complimenting the laid back garage style beat from Great Skies and Franko’s unmistakable vocal.
After ending 2016 on a high, with a Maida Vale session for Huw Stephens at Radio 1 and a co-sign from the godfather of Grime,Wiley, Franko Fraize is back for 2017 with fresh sounds.
The track, which was first broadcast by BBC Introducing in Kent, draws on influence from the UK electronic music scene and showcases Frankos’ stand out vocal delivery over a melodic laid back beat from the Great Skies. The lyrics detail the exhilarating feeling of throwing shapes on a night out until everything starts to blur. Known as the “voice for the everyday”, as he talks tales of everyday life that resonates across the board, Franko’s lyrics and presence are archetypically English and strike a chord with many a listener for their charm, and wit.
With an E.P alongside Great Skies due for an imminent release, a massive collaboration in the pipeline and a wealth of support already behind him, Franko Fraize presents ‘Lines’.
