Scorching garage punk with a slight goth element...

The Franklys walk on the dark side of the road.

The four-piece have a darkness to their sound that is strangely addictive, a barbed, garage punk sound with a slight air of the gothic.

Outspoken new EP 'Framed' is out now, matching crunching, Angus Young style riffs to their potent barbed wire sound.

The band tell us that “lyrically, the record takes a look at the current state of the world’s affairs, whether that be on a small scale, such as in ‘Small Town, Small Talk’, or on much wider reaching issues.”

“For example, ‘Mayday’ takes a swipe at the massive mess of the Brexit vote and its subsequent fallout. The songs deal with an increasing obsession with gossip, news and a lack of empathy fuelled by portrayals of unobtainable perfection found on some social media.”

Standout cut 'Illusions' has received the video treatment, a gripping counterpoint to their lucid songwriting.

There's a slight air of the ominous, too, just the way that The Franklys like it. Tune in now.
