NEGATIVE SPACE EP
RENEE COTSIS (Publicist)
Alex Frankel is nothing if not busy.
2016 has seen the NYC-based Holy Ghost! frontman drop the glorious nu-disco Crime Cutz EP with bandmate Nick Millhiser via DFA and open the wildly successful Frankel's Delicatessen in Greenpoint Brooklyn with his brother Zach.
Frankel has been a prolific collaborator and live performer throughout 2016 as well. He features on critically acclaimed Classixx single “I Feel Numb” and has performed live with the group throughout the year including Lollapalooza, FYF Fest, KCRW and on Last Call with Carson Daly. Frankel joined Neon Indian and Friends for a special Pitchfork TV live performance of Prince’s "Pop Life" earlier this summer, and this past spring he and Millhiser debuted the new Holy Ghost! material live with a full band and choir at the Museum of Modern Art. The duo later played Pitchfork Festival and Panorama Fest.
Having just hit the road with Classixx and Neon Indian for a series of live solo shows (20+ dates through the end of October, full band), Frankel is surprise dropping his first-ever solo EP Negative Space this Friday September 30th.
Recorded at his home studio in Brooklyn, Chromeo’s Funk Box Studios in Burbank, CA, and mixed and mastered by the inimitable Alex Epton (Björk, TV On The Radio, FKA Twigs, Spank Rock) at New York’s XL Studios, Negative Space is a four-track collection of candy-coated disco pop-funk jams that showcase Frankel’s solo chops and see the artist stepping out of his comfort zone and continue to push the envelope.
