The Franklys

The Franklys are an all-girl garage rock’n’roll band based in London, featuring a rhythm section as solid and driving as an army tank, which consists of all-American drummer Nicole Pinto and home grown talent Zoe Biggs on bass. Fronting up the quartet like a pair of firecrackers personified are Swedish pair Jen Ahlkvist, (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), and Fanny Broberg (lead guitar), contributing with double-barrelled screaming guitars and melodic guitar hooks, lending a rich variety to the styles and sounds that cascade off the stage.

The Franklys are an all-girl garage rock’n’roll band based in London, featuring a rhythm section as solid and driving as an army tank, which consists of all-American drummer Nicole Pinto and home grown talent Zoe Biggs on bass. Fronting up the quartet like a pair of firecrackers personified are Swedish pair Jen Ahlkvist, (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), and Fanny Broberg (lead guitar), contributing with double-barrelled screaming guitars and melodic guitar hooks, lending a rich variety to the styles and sounds that cascade off the stage.

These four ladies have been making themselves known around the capital since they kicked it all off with a sell-out show at London’s historical 100 Club in 2012. Since then the girls have been working hard both in the studio and on the road with multiple hard rocking performances, and a tour through East-coast America in October 2013. Early 2014 saw their first gigs in Sweden, plus numerous dates across London. Further UK. wide dates followed in the summer of 2014, which included playing both the Main Stage and the XFM Stage at Strawberry Fields Festival in Leicestershire. Autumn 2014 will see the band play shows in Germany and Norway as well as a return to Camden’s legendary Barfly and the John Peel Centre in Suffolk.

Between extensive touring, The Franklys have released an eponymous debut EP in early 2013, and follow up single ‘Puppet’ in spring 2014 which was recorded on 2” tape and released on a 7” limited edition vinyl, both produced and mastered by Sean Douglas (Adam Ant, Wire) and Brian Lucey (The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys) at Fish Factory Studios in London. « hide
