It's the work of an artist who's not afraid to take chances; not afraid to grow. It's also the work of an artist at the absolute top of her game, and as a result, Herein Wild ranks as one of the best, most inspired and inspiring, albums of 2013.

Under The Radar

Herein Wild is a nice record, skillfully executed, but it's essentially the aural equivalent of living in a padded cell: so soft and secure you find yourself yearning for some harsh everyday reality. 


By making an exact replica of Interstellar minus the sharp and subtly diverse array of songs, Herein Wild reveals the limitations of that range while turning its predecessor’s personality void from a cost of doing business into a serious liability.

Consequence of Sound

The songs where she pays dues to her roots feel redundant, occasionally stagnant. The moments where she breaks from her comfort zone work beautifully as she strips away the pretense of pop to expose something more vulnerable, more uniquely her.


She still seems a bit timid, often tucking her darker proclivities under thick sheets of silky synths, strings, and fluffy lyrics.

The voice of Frankie Rose gently floats over a sophisticated mix of textures, a beautifully crafted amalgam of punk and dream-pop, making songs that are both catchy and dreamy.
