Episode 87 : Frances Quinlan of Hop Along
This week's episode is brought to you by Stubhub.
After fighting through a hotel lobby brimming with influencers at a social media conference, host Lior Phillips checks in with Frances Quinlan to discuss her new solo album, Likewise. In the burst of indie guitar bands with raw-hearted lyrics and soaring emotional choruses, Hop Along have always stood out—thanks in part to Quinlan’s undeniable voice. On her new solo project, the guitarist-vocalist mixes in a healthy dose of synth and strings. In this chat, Frances and Lior discuss tour life with Hop Along, the inspiration behind Likewise, reading Norwegian author Karl Ove Knausgård on the tour bus, the perfectionism of too many vocal takes, and what it truly means to separate art from artist.
