    Default Frances Quinlan, frontwoman of band Hop Along

    I want to talk about Frances Quinlan, front woman for the band Hop Along. (If you dont know, you'll definitely want to ((or at least if you're xNFx)) SHES NOT FOR EVERYONE lol that's for sure.

    Anyway I'm almost *certain* she is INFP. I've listened and have related to a LOT of artists in my day, but no one quite sings out how I feel the way she does. Through her music I have truly felt a connection with myself and she says all the things i truly feel but could never verbalize with such clarity as she does.

    I want to note her style alone. Very unique feelsy sound, I am in love with her scratchy vocals and folk undertone. Initially a solo gig with her first album (my personal favorite) Freshman Year she's now joined by her brother and a few others and have released Get Disowned

    Firstly, have some interviewz!




    And now the jamzzz
    This one is just heard more than examined
    Bride, Groom, and the Hot Air Balloon. Young married couple get swept up away to their death in the ocean. There are two versions of this one sad, lovely and slow, and another upbeat, happy even. "She said we could be a pair of happy fish we'll build our house in sunken ships" I never fail to dance and feel so happy and warm when I listen to it!

    Do ya, do ya have a house for me? I need something big, I can hide from myself in. I need a wall so I can't see anything at all.


    For Sebastian, from a friend:
    please be like that day when you saved all the rabbits
    carried them in your arms into the cool garage
    watch the way new things just hop along
    hop along
    hop along
    sing your song
    your guidance councelor was wrong
    you've had a light all along
    so sing your song
    and hop along hop along
    sing your song hop along

    so changed are things in this home oh oh
    the dogs have gone and left only their bones
    /and I am afraid of everything especially the sun
    once I dreamt it flew into the earth and killed everyone. would I wail off and kiss him and say
    I always liked you
    or call my mother say dear mother
    I wish that there was something we could do
    but I am a dog I just sat up and begged
    thought I'm not so sure I'd like bein dead
    but am I much better lyin here in my bed
    and opened my eyes up to see
    some sun had fallen over me

    Young love is cheap I mean it's everywhere
    This ain't no statement of knowlege
    It's just my defense

    /I want truth and beauty
    I wanna love someone simply
    I want truth and beauty
    I wanna love something
    without it having to need me

    Some man sent you a big fake
    million dollar bill
    you thought it was the real thing
    you were gonna buy the world.
    How crushing it must have been to find
    this is not your place, this is
    not your time.
    At least you're numb to the sun
    crashing down upon
    your fifty-something hide
    Time's already working hard against the mind
    there is no kindness, there's a different
    kind of crime
    Voices you were hearing baby blue
    was it God? why did he only want to talk
    to you?
    your forgotten mind
    is also (also) mine.

    None of these videos are interviews.

    I've added a couple interviews, there aren't many as she's not very mainstream. I'm sure there's a handful of written interviews she's done, I'll have to search around.

    You know, I think you're right. Based on the songs and lyrics you posted, I thought ISFP seemed like a possibility. Then it seemed like INxP from the interviews.

    She's very specific when she speaks. (I got used to the young INFPs on Youtube who are hesitant and meandering.) Anyway, I wondered about INTP. She has a lot of little "giddy" moments, though. In the second interview, she says this:

    "'Cause that's how you grow is just by thinking about your experiences and the experiences of other people around you and forming your own conclusions from that or questions, and those can make...some of the best songs are just questions that people have. And, you know...and just making it about the song, serving the song. Whatever people might think of what you're doing, I mean, you're always growing if you're always serving something you believe in."

    Heh.

    I agree with you.

    Sweet! I really appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me I was just guessing off of a hunch, but its pretty fulfilling to be right :p heheh still learning about other types, just really dove into mbti a few weeks ago mainly focused on INFJ/INFP.
    I knew Frances and I had to share at least some of the same functions.

    Well, we don't know for certain what her type is. Maybe you could ask her on the social networks. What's everyone doing now? Tumblr. Or one of those kind of things.
