Frameworks Announce New EP “Time Spent” Due February 5th Via Topshelf Records

January 6, 2016



Frameworks premiere ‘Time Spent’ with Noisey

Two Song 7″ Available 5th February 2016 on Topshelf Records

Formed in Gainesville in 2011, Frameworks first gained notice with their early 2013 Small Victories EP on 13th Floor Records.  A split release with Kittyhawk, Prawn and Droughts later that year drew more attention to the band who somehow manage to create music that exists where Explosions in the Sky and Envy meet. In 2014, the band released their massive Loom LP, recorded with Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Joyce Manor), which Stereogum referred to as “sonic violence”.

This year, they’re back with a new EP titled Time Spent, out February 5th on Topshelf Records. Recorded at Glow In The Dark Studios with Matt McClellan, the EP shows a darker side of the band as they incorporate industrial noise and synths into their trademark sound of lustrous, shimmering guitars over a dominating beat. Title track “Time Spent” provides a perfect cross section of the band’s core sound – soaring riffs charged by an unabating barrage on the drums – with new found power from pocket synths tinkering and exploding throughout. Only two tracks, this EP provides sneak peak into the band’s future, another full length due out later in 2016. Let’s just say, the future looks bright.

Time Spent will be released 5th February 2016 via Topshelf Records
