Frame and Mantle Releases Teaser for Debut Album by Chris Sexauer

Last December I had the pleasure of interviewing up-and-coming local band Frame and Mantle, the post-rock quartet whose sound is somewhere between Explosions in the Sky and Title Fight and is making their way into the local music scene. In the interview they mentioned recordings they had done on a remote island in Canada, stating that the record should be out sometime this spring.

Well, Reader readers, the guys of Frame and Mantle have given us a teaser to further whet our appetite for local post-rock. Here is the video, produced by the band themselves:



The video contains footage shot while the band recorded in Pointe au Baril, Ontario, and captures the isolated environment they mentioned in their interview. Set to some of the more atmospheric tones of the album, the video is comprised of both landscape shots and interview segments in which the band talks about why they play music and how they recorded the album.

“It’s something to be proud of…I like to create and I think music is my outlet for a lot of different things in my life,” remarks guitarist Brian Thompson in the video. “People our age are getting married and having kids and I want to be in a band and travel…meet new people and try new things, you know?”

So go ahead and watch the video above and get stoked for new local music. Get ready for the album coming soon, in addition to a split with Michigan-based band Cascadia sometime this summer. You can also check out the band on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
