Franke is a singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles, California. Not too long ago, he released a music video for “Kids”, a dreamy emo-pop tune from his debut EP, entitled, “Internet Heartbreak”.

Franke – “Kids”

“It’s been a while and I’m scared for you. You wanted time, I made plans for two. That’s why we should keep it like this. Finger on the trigger, really know I don’t miss. Time I could do it for the kids. Call it like I see it and you know I don’t miss. I had to crash my car just to realize how far I’ve come. It seems I’m messing up with every single thing I’ve done. And I’m a goner anyway.” – lyrics

The audiovisual finds Franke vibing out inside a room with a desirable female planted in the background.

Fast forward into the next scene where he’s seated inside a bubbly party with female dancers grooving to a rhythm. But the hooded entertainer’s focus simply isn’t there because he’s thinking about the object of his desire.

‘Kids’ contains a relatable storyline and dreamy vocals. Also, the song possesses lush instrumentation flavored with hip-hop, electronic, and urban pop elements.
