THE FRANKLYS

unveil

“Comedown” video

New single

March 25th

18 date UK Tour

The Franklys unveil the video for their new single  ‘Comedown’ released on March 25th  through Electric Wood Records, on CD and 7”.

Comedown is a cautionary tale from the edge with a message of empowerment. Evoking classic Nuggets with an electrifying swagger and metallic crunch, Comedown sees The Franklys go for a “bigger and more instant sound”.

Watch now the visually arresting and compulsive video for Comedown,

as the lead descends into the void https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFKog5tmvmg Comedown was partly filmed on the same  locations as Shaun of the Dead, as the Franklys pay their “own little homage to a classic film!”.

The Franklys embark on their most extensive and ambitious tour since they formed and promise each show will be ‘loud, raw, energetic, sweaty, and an exciting spectacle!”  The Franklys first tour of 2016 starts in Brighton on February 29th and finishes 18 shows later with 2 shows in one day, first the Freehold Festival in Liverpool followed by The Firebug in Leicester on April 8th.

The Franklys, are an all girl rock ‘n’ roll band based in London. 50% Swedish, 25% British, 25% American, 100% rock’n’roll.

The Franklys have heard all those bullshit lines that you get when you’re a female rock band. “Oh, you can really play!” or worse, “You play pretty well for girls!”  Zoë says simply “We just focus on making great music and having a laugh. For all of us, this is the band we always wanted to be in”.

This four piece force of nature features a rhythm section as solid and driving as an army tank, which consists of all-American drummer Nicole Pinto and home grown talent Zoe Biggs on bass.  Fronting up the quartet like a pair of firecrackers are Swedish pair Jen Ahlkvist (lead vocals and rhythm guitar) with her bitter sweet and ever so edgy vocals, and Fanny Broberg (lead guitar), contributing double-barrelled screaming guitars and melodic guitar hooks, lending a rich variety to the styles and sounds that cascade off the stage.

The Franklys aim to make their first album later this year.  For now, it’s all about getting out on stage and kicking ass. “Our show is energetic, frenetic and sweaty.” Jennifer says. “Prepare to be blown away”.

The Franklys love ’50s rock’n’roll, ’60s psych, ’70s punk, ’80s new wave and you will love The Franklys, so catch them at a show near you.
