“An artist you should know about” - LAUREN LAVERNE (BBC 6MUSIC)Frankie Knight 'Blue Marble' Album Release Show
Feat. a live full band performance from Frankie Knight + Bukky + Rogue & Josh ‘Blue Marble’ is Frankie Knight’s debut solo album, out 27th September via MIOHMI RECORDS
Thought-provoking and conscious, yet soothing and dreamlike, the album is named after the famous image of Earth taken by Apollo 17, and it brings a collection of tracks all inspired and held together by the theme of unity. A hugely engaging performer, with her live band Frankie Knight has played a slew of headlines as well as support for Young Fathers, Anchorsong and Kosheen
Knight explains: “I remember once hearing Kate Tempest say that when writing about politics, the message is more interesting and accessible when you make the link to interpersonal relationships at home. This thought stayed with me. I have explored how the ways we act in our everyday lives impact and resound with the wider world. I write music to soothe the problems I face and try and use the process to find a positive. Referencing the Blue Marble image was a way of representing that need to step back and reflect, looking at different perspectives. It’s a strange comfort when you look at pictures of the Earth from space.”
Self-produced by Knight and her oldest friend, Rob Swaine, the new material combines her organic approach to songwriting and soundscape-building with Swaine’s beat production skills refined through years of DJing, along with their shared love for Ibiza chillout. The pair grew up in South West London, bonding over a love for music including Portishead, Massive Attack, Lamb, Simian Mobile Disco, Major Lazer, Little Dragon, Zero 7, RJD2 and Noisia. Both having now migrated to the South Coast, on this album they fuse bass music undertones and pop sensibilities, and instruments picked up on travels all over the world, with an elegant, meditative sense of introspection and simplicity that reflects their escape from urban life.
