November 8, 2020 monkjackblog 0

Once a screenwriter, novelist and journalist, now thriving as a singer-songwriter, Franki is certainly a unique taste.

Described as a force of nature, she’s thrown everything into this latest track – even bouncing back after Apple Inc recently sued her for her appropriation of a fruit.

Refusing to compromise, Franki won the fight and continued to use the pineapple logo which producer and partner Nararaji Tribino suggested epitomised her character – spikey on the outside, sweet inside.

The resulting track is defying and crazy; it’s an outburst of punk anger. With the word ‘f***’ used over 30 times, make sure you prepare yourself before delving into the world of fierce fire that is Franki Pineapple.

One of the freshest up-and-comers in alternative indie, Vanderocker, is preparing to release her latest EP, The Good Punk, on the 13th November.

Including four new tracks, including lead track Supercell, as well as a bonus instrumental and a short film on the way, Vanderocker has reaffirmed her status as an exciting and intriguing newcomer to the scene.

With the EP touching on subjects such as duality, voyeurism and sex – through the medium of psychedelic, indie electro-pop – it promises to be a body of art rather than a collection of songs.

As well as writing all the music and performing several of the instruments across the EP, Vanderocker (full name Adrienne Vanderocker) also collaborates with Joe Cocker, Peter Holmström, and producer Brandon Eggleston on The Good Punk.

Adrienne herself has described the music of Vanderocker as “a basic study of humans on different levels, almost from an Alien National Geographic kind of perspective.” This can clearly be heard on the incoming EP..
