Catchy rhythm song ‘Downfall’ super well produced with a wonderful voice by ‘Frannie B’ releases an important message about addiction
Beyond the simple pleasures of enjoying
music there is an elusive quality about the
artform that is hard to pinpoint. It might be
that music affords some of us the ability to
be open and vulnerable; to be able to lose
oneself while simultaneously being
completely in the moment. For Frannie B,
music’s always been just that — a safe space
where she can truly express the inner
workings of her mind, a place where she can
be free. It is through her brand of modern
Pop that Frannie B seeks to replicate that
same magical feeling for others, leaving a
radiating glow on each and every listener that
her music touches.
Stylistically, Frannie B draws from a plethora
of artists in the Pop ecosphere. From the big
Pop hooks of Justin Bieber, to the darker
shades of Dua Lipa, and even lashings of
RnB stylings ala Kehlani thrown in for good

it is diverse. Sonically, her music could be
described as a melting pot of soulful and
gentle vocal lines colliding with an ocean of
Her music has risen to critical acclaim in a short
amount of time, with praise received from
notable artists including Sinead Harnett and Anne
Marie, as well as a whole host of press mentions.
Additionally, Frannie B has landed consistent
airplay multiple times on BBC Radio, BBC
Upload and BBC Bristol to name just a few.
“To me this song is about any form of addiction,
including how damaging the internet is and how
much young people (myself included) allow it to
control almost every aspect of our lives.
Addiction is an area that is attached to a lot of
negative stigma but has really personally
affected me so I hope this can help anyone
struggling with it to feel less alone.”- Frannie B
Frannie B is releasing her new single
“Downfall” on the 17th September 2021.

In 2018, she wrapped up her first UK tour,
playing everywhere from smaller local shows to
support slots at the revered O2 Academy 2 in
Islington. Notably, she also performed to the
Mayor of Oxford and at The Brixton Jamm.
Outside of her own music, Frannie B also lends
her vocal talents to established artists in the
music industry, including alt rock sensation

year. It was recorded in Frannie’s bedroom and
produced over Skype with Danish producer
“Downfall” is written about struggling with
addiction and it wraps this sensitive topic in
dance influenced dark pop. While the track was
initially written about one particular form of
addiction, in our current world almost everyone
is addicted to their phones and social media.
This song is about falling prey to those coping
mechanisms (whatever they may be) that you
use to escape the real world.
