THE FRANKLYS – SINGLE REVIEW

The Franklys – Castaway 
The Franklys - Castaway


Release Date: Out Now

All female quartet the Franklys really are one of the fiercest, most vital bands around these days and that has nothing to do with their gender. You see, new single ‘Castaway’ comes out of the blocks at 100 miles per hour with razor sharp guitars and drums that are in a hurry to get somewhere. Throw in the vocals that switch from a slacker tone in the verse to a garage squall in the chorus and you couldn’t ask for much more energy, intention or intensity. The ‘live’ video just adds to the energy and when they start to build for the crescendo you can’t help but feel that these guys are perfectly balanced between Siouxsie & The Banshees and the bands of the 90s like The Breeders, Veruca Salt and Throwing Muses. The Franklys are a vital band and, whilst they are a lot of fun, they need to be taken seriously as a force to be reckoned with. Woe betide those who don’t heed my words.
