The Franklys give a garage-tinged ode to originality with their biting new track titled ‘Keeper’. The song is reminiscent of a time when songs were consistently kickass and the era of today when songs are diverging into relevant genres across the board. ‘Keeper’ keeps the listener firmly on edge with a heavy rhythm and ferocious backbeat worthy of any underground club that stays just under the radar enough to stay cool.
About The Franklys
Comprised of two members from Sweden and two from England, The Franklys have created something unique, commonly described themselves as “frenetic garage rock with heavy and psychedelic overtones”. But don’t fool yourself by assuming this is just another band on the London rock scene.
The Franklys have built a reputation for themselves as one of the most exciting live bands on the London circuit and beyond with relentless touring across the UK, Europe, and America the past couple of years. They are best known for being a band that can’t be pigeonholed and have proved that by making festival appearances at both Isle of Wight 2015, Download Festival 2016 and Rebellion Festival 2017.
May 2017 saw the release of their debut album ‘Are You Listening?’, which received praise from publications such as ‘Louder Than War’ and ‘Vive Le Rock’ as well as radio stations such as BBC 6 Music where Steve Lamacq described the first single as ‘The best thing they’ve done to date’.
The latest single to be released off the album is the fourth track ‘Keeper’, a dark number with a haunting bass and drum intro executed by bassist Biggs and drummer Clark. The song slowly builds into an upbeat indie-style chorus and brings out some heavy guitar-riffing from Broberg along with some serious cymbal bashing. The vocals, which start off merely as a whisper, soon transforms into howls where Ahlkvist declares she will keep him, her, or even it, for herself.
Immerse yourself into the mad and peculiar world of The Franklys. You just never know what you’re gonna get.
