Platinum-selling duo FRENSHIP – James Sunderland and Brett Hite – have released their new EP, Vacation Versions, via Counter Records (part of the Ninja Tune family). Featuring re-imagined versions of four tracks from their debut full-length album, Vacation, the duo trade their electro-pop synths for softer arrangements alongside swells and warm harmonies.
In celebration of the release, FRENSHIP will perform at an intimate hometown show on November 7th at Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever in Los Angeles, CA, bringing their high-energy showmanship for an exclusive, never done before evening promptly titled “The Last Vacation.” For more information, please visit www.wearefrenship.com. On November 5th, the duo will premiere their new documentary, FRENSHIP: The Road to Vacation at 1PM EST/10AM PST on YouTube. Directed by Matt Kleiner (Way Of The Ocean: Australia, Kerrzy), the documentary follows FRENSHIP’s journey from the moments they first met while working at Lululemon to the beginning stages of creating music together leading to their 2016 global hit “Capsize” with Emily Warren which has garnered nearly 520 million streams and multiple gold and platinum certifications around the world, an inside look at the process behind their debut full-length, Vacation (out now), and an extensive tour schedule as they opened for Bastille on their world tour before selling out their 2018 U.S. headliner.
Vacation Versions follows a series of buzzed-about singles including “Capsize,” which reached notable chart positions in 25 countries, and “1000 Nights” which FRENSHIP performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The duo, whose brilliant production chops and diverse inspirations color their wide-angle indie-pop songs, were picked as Spotify’s #2 Breakout Artist in 2016, were one of Shazam’s 2017 Emerging Artists, have garnered over800 million global streams and 2.4 million monthly listeners on Spotify, and are a festival favorite, having performed at Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Life Is Beautiful, and Voodoo.
