Martin Frawley - Undone at 31
And yes, Undone at 31 is a break-up album. But it also is an album about finding yourself in loss, and shaping a life as maturing adult through the pain and confusion. Sometimes redemption is not achieved by means of a big, recognizable event, but rather via the small steps of letting go, forgiving, and understanding that life doesn't require perfection or total understanding to go forward. By the last note of "Where the Heart Is", we get the sense that Martin is getting there via the small steps, and will be fine. As for us, the man's solo debut has left us quite impressed, and this album is one of our favorites of the first quarter of 2019.
On this album Martin sang and played guitar, bass, piano, percussion, and synths. He was supported by Stewart Bronaugh (guitar/bass/piano/synths/percussion/melodica), Angus Lord (bass), Matthew Harkin (drums), and John Lee (bass/percussion/synths). Undone at 31 is out now in digital, CD, and vinyl formats via Merge Records.
