uitar amplifiers screech to harmonize the yelling in
Abbey Road Studios in the heart of Liverpool. Microphone cords are flung, harsh words sting, and a new record for The Frames is no more. But that won’t stop lead guitarist and principal songwriter, Pear Chongwarin. Her new, self-titled, solo album debuted at number 3 on iTunes this past Wednesday.
“IT ROCKS WITH AN ACOUSTIC VIBE” She is already on her way to a world tour starting at Coachella this summer, headlining with Radiohead and Rage Against the Machine. Chongwarin describes her new sound as “intimate, dark, and personal with a heavier sound that still rocks with an acoustic vibe.” Critics eargerly anticipate her new record, as only previews, and clips of
songs have been played live. New songs such as “Lotus Night” and “The Self-Unseeing” have become regulars on her setlist, and since then, have exploded over the internet and on Youtube. Fans so far have been responding positively to her new material, with pre-orders reaching the 10,000 mark already, and is fast approaching its sell-out mark. The smile on Chongwarin’s face as she performs onstage hints at her excitement in starting her solo career, perhaps better suited for Chongwarin. With intricate lyrics spawning in the freedom of a solo career, the entire indie music scene is exctied to see what Pear Chongwarin will do next.
