Electronic producer To Be Frank (aka Frank Pescod) unveils the haunting video to 'Nothing'; the title single for his brand new 4-track EP which is due out on July 1st 2013 through Solebay Music.
The video features the singer clutching his lit Zippo lighter as he takes what looks like a chilly, misty walk in a wood while lamenting a lost love who happens to be sat home alone staring into her fireplace. She begins to burn a photograph of him in the flames as he makes a fire in the woodland. In spite of the fire theme, the video evokes a colder feeling with slow, echoing vocals, a chaotic background rhythm and melodic, foreboding crescendos.
'The EP is a selection of tracks written from various places, not all my own situations but all written in my studio', Frank explains. 'I wanted the EP to reflect the various styles I am currently working on at present.' He certainly is making the most of his musical ability and track two, 'I Lied', even features a collaboration with Hazel Tratt who is in possession of a voice of similar ethereal beauty. With support from the likes of Radio 1, 6 Music and Vevo, To Be Frank is looking to be building up one hell of a fanbase this year.
