Swiss finest Bluesadelic, Country, Folk & Garage Rock Band, Established in 2017
Our new studio album "Life and Death of Frankie Trombone" is out now everywhere!
On their third album, Dear Misses have made a real stylistic break. Distorted guitars and howling fuzz solos have been exchanged for acoustic guitars, pedal steel guitar, mandolin, violin, blues harp and polyphonic vocals.
It's a concept album about the life of fictional Wild West outlaw "Frankie Trombone." The 12 original compositions deal with the erratic life of an outsider, his heartbreak, loneliness, inner turmoil, social ostracism, failure and eventual death. Despite the lyrical heaviness, the songs carry a vibe of summer lightness.
On a musical level, Gram Parsons' vision of Cosmic American Music continues; country and folk are blended with rockabilly, psychedelic, blues and even trip hop. Deeply impressed by the maestro, "Ennio Morricone", elements of the Italo-Western soundtrack are also present in the songs.
Typical for "Dear Misses", the album was recorded and mixed completely analog.
For the album cover, the five musicians pose in custom-made nudie suits decorated with glitter stones and psychedelic subjects in front of a star-studded desert sky, shortly before a new day dawns in the life of Frankie Trombone.
