"If rock is a rebellion, then why not lead the rebellion into goodness... and hope...?" lead singer Mutto captures something of the heart of Gold Coast four piece Soulframe. Indeed, historically good rock n roll has been driven by rebellion, and in a war-torn 21st century world, Soulframe are finding much to rebel against.
The bands appropriately titled 2nd album Escaping Entropy, launched to over 1000 fans at Brisbane's Tivoli theatre, while certainly uplifting lyrically, is also drawing widespread critical acclaim. Entropy has so far collected a swag of awards including a win and 3 further nominations at Musicoz, a Pacific Songwriting Award, two of the top 10 spots in the Australian Songwriters Association Awards, and top spot in Sea Fm's 'Unsigned' competition. Soulframe's growing reputation has also received endorsement from their peers, leading to supports with New Zealand/OC favourites Evermore, UK band Delirious, and with Aussie rockers Grinspoon and MotorAce.
In a world where rebellion is being revolutionised (to the point where 'straight-edge' has become the new 'hardcore'), perhaps there is an opportunity for the rebellion that is rock and roll to find a new potency. Soulframe believe so passionately, and are intent on taking their rebellion to the world.
SOME WORDS ON SOULFRAME
"Full of musical precision... an album of heartfelt and driven musical excursions... an esky full of ice blocks for a Saturday afternoon in the park, occasionally dipping into darker territory, only to emerge moments later with a broad smile on its face."
Robert Lukins, Time Off Magazine
"Soulframe are one of the bright lights among a new breed of bands who have great tunes and something to say." - Dave Drinkall, Rhubarb/Toupee Records
"...their problem isn't lack of singles, it's which songs to choose from because near half the record is ripe for the airwaves." - Stu McPhee, Atlantis Records & Ear Medicine
"...the music stands out and is absolutely compelling... well constructed with imaginative lyrics and the lead singer's voice is simply outstanding." - Belinda Sanders, ABC Radio
