FRAMES INFO:FRAMES are back with their second album, In Via and one immediately hears that after five years of existence, they’ve stayed true to their unique sound. It’s a difficult sound to describe, even enter looking through all the niches, corners and boxed in genres we all know. With a true players ease, huge guitar riffs turn into romantic melodies, driving drums travel through dark mists to find a ray of sunshine, soft piano sequences dance up an ever-building foundation until they form the perfect storm. Chapter for chapter, song for song, strings of emotion form a network to become personal stories – either real of fictional – where listeners can form an individual soundtrack for their own mental picture. The band’s only goal – to give it a Frame.

In Via is the developmental follow-up to the critically acclaimed debut album “mosaik“. Recorded in Hannover at Institut für Wohklangforschung, they’ve tested and reached new boundaries. Complex songs full of little details make a rich, unique sound that grows and grows and is quintessentially Frames – totally instrumental and just outside the mainstream.

“Meyer is talented and the band is great – The Beginning is richly anthemic, ISP builds in intensity to enthralling effect and Driving Head sounds like a single, minus the sing.”

“For the times of reflection between the riffs and the roars “mosaik” is haunting perfection. Frames can take you to musical places that you’ll never want to leave and show you sights that become more captivating every time you visit their world.”

“A smidgen of Oceansize, a tadge of Steven Wilson and a healthy smattering of Pure Reason Revolution (The Dark Third). This certainly is to be recommended as a sterling debut from an exceptionally talented young band.”

Feature: “On The Verge: Artists you should know about.”

“In a time when we are constantly being told that albums are an endangered species and that all we need is a digital player that houses “songs”, it is a wonderful thing to stumble across an album that is exactly that. An Album – with a capital A.”

“So many bands try hard to do what Frames do so wonderfully in their music. They truly speak with their music even though it’s in an instrumental format. If you’re a fan of music that strays off of the beaten, conventional path then Frames’ Mosaik is highly recommended.”
