Independent artist Franko Fraize has just dropped his new single Side By Side, a track that embodies everything the Britain native stands for. The song was premiered with Mistajam on BBC Radio 1Xtra and has much to show for. In the British DJ’s words: “I’ve been keeping my eye on him for a while but this is possibly his best track to date!”
The tune features Alex Joseph and a catchy piano riff that you can’t help but bob your head to plus have stuck in your head for the rest of the day. His lyrics couple perspective, empathy and understanding tied together in a package of bold disposition. Add that to his ability to connect to his listeners through his charismatic charm as well as familiar tones of British colloquialism and you’ve got a gateway for deeper messages of growth and recognizing yourself in his work.
Franko who is yet unknown to many and widely loved by those who do has an impressive track record to show for himself. His performances include BBC Radio 1’s Bid Weekend, Reading & Leeds, The Great Escape Tramlines and more and has been on tour with none others than Mike Skinner and Rudimental.
