New York-based indie-pop maestro Caicos (Alex Frenkel’s moniker for his solo project apart from the indie band Gospels) shares a new track entitled “Bruise Or Blush,” the second single off his forthcoming album Ascension Intention, out September 15 via #veryjazzed Records. The new track was inspired by the impossibility of living up to the greatness of your predecessors.
Earlier this summer, Caicos shared the record’s first cut, “A Spade A Spade,” which demonstrates the depths of their sonic and lyrical world; the track is about finding tranquillity in accepting today’s reality, even if it’s not what you expected.
Frenkel wrote, played, and recorded Caicos’ forthcoming album Ascension Intention in his home studio during the pandemic, supported by a virtual network of friends, musicians, and artists who helped along the way. The new track was inspired by the impossibility of living up to the greatness of your predecessors. Check out Caico’s new single now!
