Indie folk singer Austin Basham releases the new track “Frames,” exclusively with C&I.
Independent singer-songwriter Austin Basham’s breakthrough EP Linton // Oslo produced the track “All Is Well,” which gained tremendous momentum on Spotify. Now we get the highly anticipated follow-up song.
Basham’s latest track, “Frames,” radiates with all the qualities of folk rock that captivate audiences. Its solemn lyrics unfold to dreamy guitar strums and clean piano keys, leading to a harmonious bridge. The song’s mellow indie flair and light sound are balanced with Basham’s brooding lyrics and tender, but deep, vocals. The result is an introspective masterwork.
“A large portion of this song was written and recorded at a friend of mine’s art studio in the town of Rånåsfoss, Norway, about an hour outside of Oslo,” says Basham, who is based in Austin, Texas, but constantly travels for inspiration. “Inside there were paintings and drawings everywhere, an old printing press, stacks of wood for the stove, and a loft. I’d stay there for weeks at a time and draw inspiration from the artwork and the snowy forest outside.”
“I’m so excited for its release and also looking forward to my full album coming out soon,” Basham says.
