The result of an existential odyssey, Frankie Rose's fourth album Cage Tropical is awash with vintage synths, painterly effects pedals, upside down atmosphere and reverberating vocals. It evokes a new wave paranormality of sorts that drifts beyond the songs themselves. "My references aren't just music," says Frankie, "I love old sci-fi. They Live is one of my favorite movies ever, same with Suspiria. 80's sci-fi movies with a John Carpenter soundtrack, with silly synths – that makes it into my file, to the point that I'll write lyrics incorporating that kind of stuff. It's in there."

Beginning with the shimmery, cinematic and percussive sparkling of the album's opening track "Love in Rockets," the song's refrain of "a wheel, a wheel of wasting my life: a wheel, a wheel of wasting my time" immediately alludes to darker circumstances that led to the creative origins of Cage Tropical. "It's all essentially based on what happened to me in Los Angeles and then a return to Brooklyn," adds Frankie. "Misery turned into something good. The whole record to me is a redemption record and it is the most positive one I've made...In the end, it's about me rescuing myself via having this record."
