If you read music websites in 2011, you’ll remember the bands like Dum Dum Girls, Crystal Stilts, and Vivian Girls, all of which Frankie Rose played in before starting a solo career. Over time, Rose’s sound has become far more sonically variegated than the jangly garage pop of those earlier groups. August’s Cage Tropical culminates this trend. Her songs are thick with chorus pedal and shimmering synths, recalling a yearning, romantic strain of new wave (Cocteau Twins, the Cure) that’s influenced countless young bands. It’s to Rose’s credit that her iteration comes across more personal than trendy.
