Embrace Me" and "Sweet Boy", which gained strong support from a selection of the top Hype Machine listed blogs and BBC Introducing, this new cut marks a turning point for the project. Showcasing a noticeably more expansive production.
The Naked Eye is a unique collaborative project centered around singer Frenchie and the raw emotion she brings to her songwriting. Working with a collective of friends and musicians, her creations are realised and transformed into something truly sublime and immersive. Alan Emptage (Nina Simone, Arcade Fire, Joss Stone) is on mixing and mastering duties for the EP while Charlie P (production/guitar) injects his hip-hop influenced studio trickery into the rhythm section, made up of Jim Macrae (drums/percussion), Andres Castellanos (bass) and Tim Sentance (keys/synths).
Speaking on the track, Frenchie says:
"The track was inspired by a personal experience and one of my favourite artists, Amy Winehouse. I was really drawn to Amy for many reasons, her unique musicality, honest vulnerability, sharp wit and tragedy."
