new song “Something About Me”
from Undone at 31 
out 22 February on Merge

Those familiar with Martin Frawley’s time as co-leader of Twerps will take comfort in hearing his deceptively simple songwriting is still intact on his solo debut Undone at 31, out February 22 on Merge Records. The big reveal here is how new instrumentation and influences seamlessly expand Frawley’s playground. For proof, look no further than new single “Something About Me.” It might take several listens for one to realize Frawley is singing over just violin, Moog, and a Gracelandesque bassline…

Named for the year in his life when the bottom fell out following a long-term romantic partnership, Frawley sequenced Undone at 31 chronologically to emphasize his journey. He shared the album’s opening number “You Want Me?” ahead of its announcement, as it serves as a prologue and summation of his romantic life before 31. Next came “End of the Bar” and “Chain Reaction,” where we found the protagonist alternating between attempts to turn over a new leaf and harbored frustration and resentment. Frawley says “Something About Me” is mostly about “coming to terms with moving on, watching a loved one move on without you, and realizing as hard as it is, maybe she was better off without you. It’s one for the headphones after a couple of drinks possibly.”

Read an interview with Frawley featuring exclusive photos on Australia’s LNWYUndone at 31 is available now for pre-order on CD, LP, and blue-white marble Peak Vinyl in the Merge store and wherever you buy music.
