Single Review – The Franklys – Puppet

The Franklys are an all girl quartet hailing from the UK, US and Sweden and are based in London. Their debut single ‘Puppet’ is out on April 7th and it is a fantastic piece of garage nostalgia enthused with small pop hints that adds a further dimension to the track which features a gritty punk riff along with a razor sharp lead riff. The vocal is evocative of Siouixsie Sioux in many ways with the hint of aggression wrapped around a cool and easiness of a bold 60’s garage vocalist. The song is full of hooks, handclaps and snarling gestures all rolled into one. It completes some key but pretty basic function in that you can sing a long with it easily, it has a simple structure and rhythm that you can dance along to and it also encourages you to go wild and I imagine this track being a real crowd pleaser at their shows or in a club. Speaking of which, they played the aptly named The Garage in London yesterday and go on to play at New Cross Inn on March 22nd and launch their single on April 2nd at The Barfly before heading to the well known Good Mixer in London on the 26th of April. If you are nearby then please attend as if this song is anything to go by; it will be well worth it.
