Punk n Roll
A Grunge // Dream
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 Zoë 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.
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.
The Franklys' music has been spun heavily on radio stations, both in the UK and overseas, on London's A1 Radio, Roundhouse Radio as well as on Artrocker Radio, Bugbear Radio, Front Range Radio and Hard to Port Radio in Baltimore, USA. The girls have also been sponsored by clothing giants Fred Perry, as well as recently featuring on the Fred Perry Subculture website.
When Grunge and dreams collide...
South London based HUSSY (Sophie Nicole Ellison) makes music that’s both juxtaposingly lullful & playful yet as raw and direct as the name of her pseudonym. Joined by Sona Koloyan and Madeleine Jones, HUSSY comes to life, turning this once sexist insult on its head
“The South Londoners swerve a pendulum between nasty fuzz and sweet, open-ended restraint. Like Warpaint trading blows with early Parquet Courts, there’s a divine interplay between two distinct worlds.” - DIY Magazine
“Equipped with treacle-thick guitar riffs, pummelling drumbeats and bleak, off-kilter melodies reminiscent of Dirty-era Sonic Youth, Babes in Toyland and new dream pop textures, HUSSY brings a sense of fun and urgency to their creations. They’re already carving out a clear space in an industry that needs them" - Daisy Jones - Dazed & Confused/ Noisey
