Frankie Stew and Harvey Gunn’s new project Handle With Care was written over the last couple of lockdowns and delves into Frankie’s feelings during this strangest of years; feelings many of us will be familiar with.
Recorded between their Brighton studio and a converted barn on a farm in Hazlemere, Handle With Care follows Frankie and Harvey’s 2020 studio album Breathing Exercises, which dropped just before the pandemic struck; its bare-boned honesty and prescient themes of anxiety, stress, panic and isolation striking home with fans far and wide. Fast forward a year and the pair’s radical honesty is more pronounced and relatable than ever, with Frankie focusing on subjects including freedom, loss and the importance of relationships throughout songs such as ‘Tears On My Window’ and ‘Emotions Dancing’.
Only in their early 20’s, best mates Frankie Stew and Harvey Gunn have been self-releasing their uniquely British blend of hip hop, garage and dance music for the best part of a decade, amassing over 60 million streams in the process. Built on an independent, grassroots foundation, their hugely dedicated cult following is growing at an increasingly rapid pace, as seen by their upcoming headline booking at London’s 2,300 capacity O2 Forum Kentish Town.
Their latest album, 2020’s Breathing Exercises, saw them add Loyle Carner to a diverse list of collaborators that includes the likes of Murkage Dave and Ady Suleiman, with widespread tastemaker support coming from Annie Mac, DJ Target, Huw Stephens and 6Music, as well as co-signs from The Streets' Mike Skinner and Jorja Smith. Having been recently chosen as The Independent’s Spotlight Artist, 2021 is set to see them take their unique sound to even wider audiences with more new music and their biggest UK headline tour to date.
