Frank Alpine – Dark Places



Frank Alpine is the alias of Rich Moreno – who is no stranger to the underground scene in Los Angeles.

While I’m still trying to wrap my head around all the different “wave” genres I stumbled upon one I’ve never heard of before – cold wave. Frank Alpines’s music has been described by many as such. Could it be due in part to his frantic synths and aggresive melodies that hold more than a few notes to cold war era kraut rock? Possibly… Frank however seems more inspired by David Lynch’s view of America.

Listen to “Dark Places” above and pick up Frank Alpine’s debut LP October 25th on Wierd Records. It’s a doozy.
