All Music Guide:
After putting in time with Vivian Girls (serving as the band's drummer and writing "Where Do You Run To," a highlight of their first album), Crystal Stilts, and the Dum Dum Girls, Brooklyn-based noise pop drummer/vocalist Frankie Rose decided to work on her own material -- a series of luminous, reverb-slicked indie pop tunes influenced by Talulah Gosh, Black Tambourine, and My Bloody Valentine. Rose released a solo single, "Thee Only One," on Slumberland Records in 2009, and teamed up with bassist Caroline Yes!, drummer Kate Ryan, and guitarist Margot Bianca soon after to form Frankie Rose and the Outs. The newly formed band's self-titled debut full-length was released on Slumberland Records in the fall of 2010. For her next album, 2012's Interstellar, Rose ditched the Outs and made a solo album that also left behind the noise pop in favor of a slick, new wave-influenced sound. Helping out on the album was Le Chev, a member of Fischerspooner and a well-regarded remixer (Lemonade, Narcisse, and Rose's song "Candy").
