As promised, the music video for Frankmusik‘s next single, “3 Little Words,” has just arrived in all its technicolor magesty. Not much complexity going on here, just Mr. Frank banging about with a couple of ex-Sugababes members or something. Success! I find him rather charming here. I can’t pinpoint why, though the combination of squinty-eyed glances and plaid may have something to do with it.
Now as you all may or may not know, Stuart Price was enlisted to master the tracks for Frankmusik’s upcoming debut. I can’t believe I’m finding myself saying this, but I’m not so sure about the mixing of this track as compared to its original version on the Frankisum EP! Many moments of brilliance that sparkled throughout the original are sorely missing here. The song lost a huge layer of luster toward the end, especially with the rather mediocre layering of real vocals on top of the superior, synthsational “‘Cause you don’t know…” middle eight bit. It’s nothing majorly damaging, but I wish the track hadn’t been touched in the first place.
Anywho…Onward and upward, Sir Vincent Frank!
