Garrett balances their familiarity with extremes with an undeniable ear for melody and a gift for writing tracks that could live at home anywhere on the pop timeline. paranoia party, the project’s first EP in the wake of TikTok explosion “space girl,” rockets forward with the past half-century of radio magic in its back pocket. Atop this glitter-shocked display, Garrett spills their guts about fumbling their own power.
“space girl,” Frances Forever’s smash single, targeted TikTok and is still blasting off. The bouncy indie-pop track, which also saw a reissue with fellow rising star Chloe Moriondo, has racked up around 150 million plays worldwide and landed Garrett on a handful of Artist to Watch lists.
Frances is currently hard at work on their forthcoming album with Mom+Pop.
