A Fine Frenzy (AKA Alison Sudol) returns this September with the follow up to her critically-acclaimed 2007 debut, 'One Cell in the Sea'.
'Bomb in a Birdcage' showcases another side of AFF, as Alison explains."I think some people may be surprised. They think that I'm all fragile and ethereal, but I have a wild side, too. I'm a quiet person with a loud streak, and this record is a testament to that."
Touring with the likes of of Rufus Wainwright and Brandi Carlile also opened her ears to different sounds.
"On tour," she says, "I discovered that I love rocking out and having a good time. I started listening to as much music as I could. I didn't want to limit myself. I wanted to stretch and grow and push myself. I also wanted to have fun."
"I felt like being daring," she says. "I wasn't interested in doing more of the same, that doesn't inspire me. And now, I can't wait to get on the road with this stuff! It's going to be quite an undertaking, but I'm up for it."
