Storefront Church, the Lukas Frank helmed Los Angeles-based band has announced their debut album As We Pass via the venerable label/management company Sargent House.
As We Pass is a sweeping artistic statement that paints dark, weathered landscapes paired with Frank’s mournful croon and howls summoned via poignant songwriting that recalls the likes of Roy Orbison, Scott Walker, and Jeff Buckley. Today you can hear the first single “After The Alphabets” – a dark and cavernous composition with palpable pain felt through impressive and emotive vocals. DIIV’s Cole Smith is credited as a contributor on this song both as an instrumentalist and co-songwriter.
Frank spent his early adult life touring as a drummer for local bands, but stopped in 2016 in order to pursue Storefront Church. In 2017, Frank collaborated with childhood friend Phoebe Bridgers on the song “Shame,” which was handpicked by T Bone Burnett for inclusion in the Netflix series Godless. More recently, the singer/songwriter had a song entitled “The Gift” in the Golden Globe award-winning show The Queen’s Gambit.
