European Tour Booking for Punk, Rock and Indie Artists

THE FRANKLYS (UK)
Garage Rock



Zwei Schwedinnen und zwei Engländerinnen haben sich als einer der aufregendsten neuen Live-Acts einen Namen gemacht.

The Franklys spielen psychedelischen Garage Rock mit einem Hauch von den Runaways, Led Zeppelin und Blondie. Dabei kombinieren sie dunkle und schwere Riffs mit stürmischen Bühnenauftritten.

Sängerin Jen Ahlkvist, Gitarristin Fanny Broberg, Bassistin Zoe Biggs und Schlagzeugerin Lexi Clark tourten bereits ausgiebig durch Großbritannien, Europa und die USA, inklusive Auftritten auf den Isle of Wight und Download Festivals und als Support für Airbourne. 2017 veröffentlichten sie ihr Debütalbum "Are You Listening?"

2018 absolvierten The Franklys gleich vier Europa-Touren und veröffentlichten 2019 ihre neue EP „Framed“.




Reviews


"The half-Swedish, half-English quartet debuted with the beautiful, raw garage sound of 'Are You Listening' in 2017 and are back this month with a hot fresh EP 'Framed', launching tonight. The room quickly fills and we can’t take our eyes off of sequined-up glamorous Jennifer Ahklvist centre stage with the first thrums of guitar. The Franklys have an instant magnetic presence – it’s all in from that moment, we’re all in, fully engaged... Flying high on their ferocious energy, the gig ends with enthusiastic applause and all of us chanting for more. The Franklys prove they’re not to be missed with a live show that gets all of our heart beats pumping with DIY love. Needless to say, my mate runs to the merch stall seconds after The Franklys go off stage to get the t-shirt. We’ll sure be back when they are."

“Fun filled garage rock with a pop twist, The Franklys have a feminine edge which sets them apart from their more laddish contemporaries”
- Clash


"From the opening track ‘Castaway’ on The Frankly’s debut album 'Are You Listening' you are instantly captured by the all girl band. The sound is pure garage and has a great pop feel to it. The 4 members, half Swedish half British, have a hint of The Runaways and certainly provide a raw edge that is present throughout the album. The mix of strong heavy riffs with the straight talking lyrics is captivating to listen to and it’s all held together with the steady bass provided by Zoe Biggs and Clark’s drums which creates something that is rare to hear in music at the moment. It is an album I haven’t stopped listening to since I first turned it on and I’ll certainly be trying to catch them on their UK tour this month! 'Are You Listening?' is an unequivocal triumph. So, are you?"
