Alternative rock/emo project Frightful Places has dropped his debut single “Old Frame.”
The solo project of Kevin Tiernan (Mighty Tortuga) delivers a mesmerizing display of modern alternative rock with nods to indie, punk, and emo ebbing through.
Frightful Places was developed over the course of eight years in bedrooms, cafes, and hiking trails across Connecticut by songwriter and guitarist Kevin Tiernan.
Crafted during the pandemic and brought to life on debut single “Old Frame,” Tiernan strives to do something that feels new and uncomfortable with the new iteration. Taking himself to “frightful places” in order to achieve a sonic identity that explores intricate guitar work and heart-on-sleeve lyricism, the new work is expressive and immersive, nodding to the ’10’s emo revival, whilst sparking elements of the melodic punk present on Tiernan’s former project Moving Brooklyn.
Recorded with Chris Teti (The World Is A Beautiful Place…) at Silver Bullet Studios, “Old Frame” is the first taste of what is to come from Tiernan’s as-of-yet untitled debut EP, set for release this winter.
