It all started in July 2018 after Francesca returned from a trip to Wales with a mind full of ideas and songs, while Andrea translated them into music. Those 2018 ideas slowly translated into music and landed on all major streaming platforms this past March 26.
Our guests today are Francesca and Andrea, a unique duo that together form “Lazy Frenky”.
“ORTHO” is their debut album, a record that encapsulates the colorful world of the two components, made of an essential simplicity that brings the listener in a scenario between nostalgia and the desire to keep the dearest things close.
Lazy Frenky are a postcard of pastel colors that illuminate the grayness of autumn, they are characters out of a Wes Anderson movie: with Lazy Frenky there is always sunshine.
A complex and varied debut album, full of different nuances, like Francesca and Andrea.
In the first part you can notice a warmth composed of soul, R&B and pop nuances in a slow climb, almost as if you were witnessing a color change from red to green. This change of nuances leads to the last four tracks of “ORTHO” which feature darker, more nostalgic sounds that fully recall overseas indie-folk and electronica.
“ORTHO” we can only recommend it, but not for promo or anything else, since the first play we fell in love, seducing us with the sounds of soul and R & B, charmed by Francesca and Andrea who have decided to merge in this melting pot of styles that finds a perfect balance thanks to the enormous vocal and writing skills of the young emilians.
Just to enter more and more into the world of these two young but very promising emilians, exclusively for Collater.al Mag have compiled a playlist with all their musical and non-musical influences.
“We chose these 20 songs for the playlist to let you enter the musical universe that has been hosting us lately. They are 20 songs very different from each other, but that manage to form a key of passage between what we were before the current emergency and what we have become during this period: a personal growth that is bringing us new ideas and new musical horizons to explore. We can’t wait to get back to work to realize what we have in mind and to show you how this new musical universe is changing us deeply.”
