Frankie Rose has revealed the second song off her forthcoming Fat Possum debut, Herein Wild, a cover of goth/punk band the Damned's 'Street Of Dreams'. The New York Times notes that Rose's standout version of the track "brings a modern spin to the quintessential goth tune with menacing synths and pulsing rhythms, her angelic voice taking on a more ghostly cast than usual".
'Street Of Dreams' comes weeks after the first track, 'Sorrow', was revealed to fans and praised by a diverse range of critics. Billboard lauded 'Sorrow', saying that it "presents some unexpected sonic treats, including a string arrangement that bulks up the track's emotional impact and a roaring outro that rewards patience." SPIN remarked that Rose "expands on her New Wave-y pop leanings, turning in an upbeat, string-enhanced performance with just a hint of Broadcast in the mix." Stereogum went on to compare the song to "David Lynch's idea of coffeehouse folk."
