ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Formed in 2013 by Canadian composer/pianist Frank Horvat, The Frank Horvat Band’s uncreative name hides a wildly creative sound and a roster of ultra talented musicians. An indie art rock band with an electronic edge, they create a textured atmospheric sound that envelops you with the sweet and soaring voice of Felicity Williams (Bahamas).

Pioneering a new post-Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Bjork sound, TFHB is pop, poetry and modern expression in a beautifully pained existence. Their music takes you through a journey of all encompassing sounds from soft ambience to aggressive repetition. Their debut CD, I Can See You, explores the race we all face against time, inner angst and an isolated longing. The lyrics are old finds, but still relevant to the band’s creator. This CD combines words Frank wrote while going through his own periods of turmoil and poetry the love of his life wrote as a teenager. Seems they were on the same wavelength even before they met. Though the songs’ themes are mostly troubled, the music aims to leave listeners with a warmth and inner peace. But it isn’t all melancholic music as the fourth track captures the freeing moment of falling in love.

Front man, Frank Horvat, acts as songwriter, keyboardist and sometime singer but leaves the parts you really want to hear to TFHB’s main vocalist, Felicity Williams, who has lent her gift to many other great Canadian acts such as Bahamas, Snowblink, Hobson’s Choice and Alex Lukashevsky. THOMAS’ Thom Gill adds his languid guitar to the sound while multi-instrumentalists, Bram Gielen, on bass and Evan Tighe, on drums and percussion, add to the great wall of texture that makes the band’s distinct sound.

THE ‘I CAN SEE YOU’ STORY:
Longing turns into love. Waiting and anticipating go hand in hand.

It is hard to say exactly when the idea for this album was born. It is probably more accurate to say it evolved over time and through life. But, it all became much clearer on May 23, 2012, sitting in an optometrist’s exam room. Having just seen a photo of the back of his eye, Frank knew his new album would be called, “I Can See You”, and that his eye would somehow look out over the CD’s cover.

By then he knew he was writing an introspective CD about the feelings that drive (and hinder) him. But he still hadn’t realized that 'I Can See You' would take on a whole other meaning. That summer, as Frank began marrying his musical thoughts with song writing, he began searching for old lyrics he had previously written. It was then that he discovered a notebook of poetry that his wife had started writing in her teens, just months before they started ‘dating’. The entries were of loneliness and longing. However, her last entry in the notebook was written just three days after they had fallen in love. And, those lyrics appear on the CD in track four, Inspired by the One I Love. Working with her whole book of poetry, he grew to know another side of her. For him, 'I Can See You' now refers to how he’s gained a deeper understanding of her through her words and her world before him.

Along with the theme of love, this CD covers other profoundly human themes like the angst around running out of time, impatience when it is wasted along with the despair in not doing enough with one’s life. This is a passionate CD about the true nature of living.

FIRST SINGLE: Waiting...in Three Chords

“Waiting
Anticipating
Anxiety makes it feel longer
Is it true pain?
Or is it being alone?”

These lyrics sum up this song, this CD and what Frank spends much of his time thinking about. Always racing with creative energy, Frank is impatient with time wasting and is always burning with the worry that he won’t have enough time for all the creative work he aspires to do.

This song, written using only A minor, F major and G major chords, is a laundry list of time wasters that Frank conceived will waiting by the phone for an update he couldn’t move forward without. “One can do way more with one’s life.”
