2008 - 2015
Karl Frank is a lo-fi/pop artist from southern sweden. He started making music in his bedroom in 2005 with some kind assistance from his computer. The musical vision of Karl Frank was initially quite diffuse and his early work involved a lot of experimentation. Gradually however, a more consistent sound emerged in favour of raw minimalistic pop music.
The typical Karl Frank song is intense and concise. Usually it's based on only two or three cords and presented with directness and energy. The music is embedded in a dreamy and melancholic atmosphere, accentuated by the broken and distorted recording sound.
Karl Frank often attempts to capture the vagueness and intensity of brief moments, fragmental memories or dreams. His music might be considered as an expression of chaotic and disarranged emotions, thoughts and experiences.
