    Many say Frances Wave resembles the sound of Kasabian and Queens of the Stone Age. Mixed with originality, an obvious joy of playing and a lovely tuned comp, it is obvious that rock is dear to their hearts. The band from Trondheim in Norway was represented on both By:Larm and Trondheim Calling, in addition to receiving a nomination for Urørt (which was won by Kvelertak in the past, for example) and getting "forbildeprisen" (the role model-award) after having released only one single – the song "Black Star". The single gave them an enduring place on P3 radio in Norway among others. They have also been put forward as one of the most exciting in Scandinavian music by NME and has contributed to several Spidergawd gigs. P3 says: “Frances Wave is something as rare as a Norwegian rock band that resembles epic desert-rock with airy riffs and a rock-solid comp. Black Star is rock. If you’re a fan of Queens Of The Stone Age or The Black Keys, than you have got yourself a new favourite band.” With the help of the Spidergawd frontman Per Borten the band has recorded their debut album in his own studio and produced the album. Track listing: Black Star; XXX; Vice; Underdog; Love Is Unkind; Keep It Together; Might Be Wrong; About Last Night; The Dive; Pipe Dream
