Frances Garrett AKA: Frances Forever has announced paranoia party, their debut EP for Mom+Pop and first EP. In conjunction with the announcement, Frances Forever have shared a video for “paranoia party” and launched pre-orders for new merch from which $1 of each sale will go to The Ally Coalition. “paranoia party” follows Francis Forever’s previous single and viral hit “Spacegirl.”
Francis Forever on paranoia party:
“I wrote the song after actually going to a party and realizing I didn’t know anyone there and I just didn’t feel like myself. It was just like strangers all around me. That’s why [I wrote] the line ‘my minds going 50, my body’s going heavy’ – feeling like I can’t move and my mind’s racing, just a sense of anxiety surrounding that. Then you’re in a room surrounded by strangers and all the weird unfamiliar smells and disassociating a lot. This EP is all about feeling alone in a crowded room,” Garrett continues. “I’m hoping that listening to these songs will help you realize that everyone in that crowd feels the same way. Let’s share our troubles, softie sophomores.”
“space girl” took flight this past Fall, bolstered by a healthy appetite for the song on Tik Tok and DSPs, and continues to grow with over 500k average daily streams, and over 550 million video views and 550k videos created on Tik Tok, in addition to a reissue with fellow rising star chloe moriondo. Coming off this wave of success, Frances Forever has set their sights on a world far larger than the one they began to conquer. On paranoia party, their claim is staked more definitively than ever, its myriad moods promising to send listeners reeling into romance or off floating in existential space. And you’re invited to the celebration.
