Young Franco and Maribelle make magic on Girls Don't Cry
It's the first track from Young Franco in over a year and comes with a full, nation-wide tour too.
It's been a while since we last heard the funk-house magic of Young Franco. After blitzing up a storm in 2016 with a range of singles, his output has been relatively small since, reduced only to the grime-infused heater About This Thing last year and most recently, an official remix of Dua Lipa's pop gold IDGAF earlier this year. The dry spell is over now, however, with the Brisbane-based production gun returning in fine form with the release of Girls Don't Cry, a bouncy, funk-injected new heater from Young Franco that features past collaborator and Melbourne pop heavyweight Maribelle on vocals. Following suit from his previous work, Girls Don't Cry combines Maribelle's masterful vocal line with an upbeat and groovy production from Young Franco, which takes a note from the bass-driven, funk-disco sounds of the 80s and 90s as the single's bass line drives the glittery melodies on top.
While Young Franco's dizzying production is definitely in the foreground of much of the track's duration, it's Maribelle's bright vocals which steal the show. Over the past few years, the Melbourne-based singer-songwriter has become one of the country's best through her consistently great releases, features, and writing credits, something that shows no sign of ending as the master-of-all-trades continues to dominate with her enchanting vocal line on Girls Don't Cry - which apparently, is just the start of a bunch of releases to come between the two.
