WDYHYL Press Shot (1)

…Combination of 80’s synth pop

Cimo Fränkel is the Dutch singer/songwriter and producer born and raised in Amsterdam, where it seems a limitless amount of creative juices has churned out some incredible artists and Cimo Fränkel is no exception with his combination of 80’s synth, pop and R&B, more widely known from the single ‘Sex’, co-written by Cimo Fränkel in 2016 and was performed by Cheat Codes & Kris Kross Amsterdam. The titillating single that kept our eyes wide open and hearts racing and many wishing our educational introduction into sex had been quite that engaging.

With critical acclaim not far behind the release of his single ‘Where do you hide your love’ is an ode to the very culturally defining sound of the pop R&B sound of the 80’s/early 90’s, that broke records, won awards and a the type of music that we would’ve have expected to hear from the late Michael Jackson, or bands akin to this that may have tried to emulate that pop sound during the Jackson pre pop-rock era.


…Fränkel proves with every song why he is a multi award-winning singer

The entire single directly compares to the Jackson sound, with Prince undercurrents, yet intermingled with a modern enough for you to expect to be a single from late AVICII and Haim’s earlier material. The moment the track enters you become alert to the satin vocals of Fränkel, accompanied with an instrumental intended to keep you moving, aside from the lyrics, the insane bass-lines, Childish Gambino suavity, and looks to give Pharrell Williams a run for his money, Cimo Fränkel sends shivers down your spine whenever you hear his melodies.

CIMO Fränkel sound navigates through a variety of music. Manoeuvring through reggae, EDM, pop, synth, R&B needing very little effort, and done with such class that, albeit it at a slower pace that other artist rise to fame, Fränkel’s aptitude for music is strongly projecting into an artist that should be paid close attention to.

If if I have to confess with completely no shame of any kind, even I was forced to remove myself from my seat and dance to this one, it was just impossible to contain oneself – jokes aside Cimo Fränkel proves with every song why he is a multi award-winning singer songwriter and the new single perpetuates how talented he is and just how enormous CIMO Fränkel music will continue to grow to.
