The uplifting new single encapsulates a beautiful fusion of hip hop and future-bass influenced rap, which has Frame wearing his heart on his sleeve.
‘I Still‘ has those contagious feel-good vibes that are bound to improve any bad mood, making it an instant addition to any playlist.
Following the release of ‘I Still‘, we chatted with Frame and asked him a few questions about himself, the new single, his creative process and what we can expect to see in the future. Check it out below.
(TLF) First off, who is Frame? What can you tell us about yourself?
(Frame) I thought of that name when I was 14 and thought I was woke… Frame is a way of articulating my perspective, which in hindsight is what every artist does, but I was definitely on some “frame of mind” type thoughts.
You definitely have your own sound, where does your influence come from? What is your biggest inspiration behind everything you create musically?
For the most part I didn’t actually choose that direction to begin with. I got offered a beat produced by Kuren, which later became my first semi-successful song, and it kinda just came natural from there. I wanted to create something super authentic to myself, as everyone should, that reflects my soul. The bright sound is something that really warms my heart and I kinda just hope I can do that with others.
How would you describe your method when it comes to making each song, do you usually begin with the beat or do you get the lyrics down first?
I listen to A LOT of music and I generally send references of inspiration to my producers, write to demos and then go back and forth with ideas until it’s right.
Take us beyond the music, what does this new single mean to you?
I wrote this song after I stopped seeing a girl and it made me realise ‘I Still‘ had feelings for her… she’s now my girlfriend, so it obviously means a lot.
Lastly, what’s next to come from Frame, can we expect to see any more releases or are there any live shows we should know about?
This is the first single to my debut EP, executively produced by Dead As Disco from Brisbane. I’m also playing a show on the 27th of April at Grumpy’s in Collingwood and a few more later in the year.
With 2018 just getting started and Frame already dropping a feel-good anthem, we can’t wait to see what the rest of the year will hold.
