Billy Ray Cyrus has blessed the music world with more than just his “Achy Breaky Heart.” He also gave us his talented daughters! The lesser-known (for now) Brandi Cyrus forms up one half of Frank + Derol with Codi Caraco, who provides the lead vocals on their glistening new track “Barely Love You Too.” Frank + Derol craft their own distinct sound, forgoing Miley Cyrus‘ country twang for a minimalist indie-pop sensibility, crooning: “Every heart I’ve owned, I’ve had to give it back.” Hear it below.
Frank + Derol — “Barely Love You Too”
There’s a certain darkness to the track that suggests Frank + Derol might have much more up their sleeves than high-fructose melodies. That said, they clearly know their way around a hook: no less an authority than Neon Gold calls it “one of the best written pop songs we’ve heard this year”, and we’re not going to disagree. There’s a glimmer of something truly great here.
