Inspired by the indie rock scene in the UK, Swedish Jennifer Ahlkvist and Fanny Broberg moved to London to embark on something compelling and new. The girls crossed paths with bassist Zoë Biggs and adding drummer Lexi Clark – The Franklys were formed.
Wasting no time, they threw themselves into relentlessly touring across the UK, Europe and America, including a recent support tour with Airbourne and festival slots at Isle of Wight 2015 and Download Festival 2016.
Building a reputation for themselves as one of the most exciting live bands on the London circuit and beyond, they have transferred the unique Franklys sound to their debut album; truly showing their diversity as a band. An album with immense energy throughout, a melting pot stirred with garage, heavy rock, undertones of post-punk, whilst keeping a lively pop funk undercurrent, keeps you wondering what these ladies will pull out of their hat next. Steve Lamacq, BBC 6 Music describes the first single taken from the album, ‘Castaway’, as the “Best thing they’ve done to date!”, and, judging by this, you should be listening.
