December 2, 2015 – Los Angeles, CA’s Franky Flowers premiered their video for new single “Sneakers (Sneaky Thing)” this morning via My Old Kentucky Blog, and the Roman Zangari-directed clip – recorded entirely on VHS – can also now be seen and shared via YouTube: https://youtu.be/H2Cbm3HbavA. “Sneakers (Sneaky Thing)”, which was originally released as a limited edition 7-inch/cassette, is now available as a digital single via Turnstile Music HERE.
Led by 17-year-old Franky, the young band recorded “Sneakers (Sneaky Thing)” in February, following the August 2014 release of their debut EP, Blue Eyes, which sold out its limited edition cassette tape run. The four-piece crafted the soaring, distorted lo-fi pop song about summer flings and the memory of love, influenced by artists including the Beach Boys, Phil Spector, Blur, and Chet Baker. A blissful mix that dexterously tows the line between old and new, its sound mimics that of a peaking level on the four-track cassette recorder on which they recorded their first demos.
Franky Flowers began when Franky was 16, who at first recorded and played solo shows using a looping pedal. He recruited friend (and high school jazz band-mate) Abe on bass, seeking to flesh out the band’s sound, and today’s Franky Flowers line-up solidified with the addition of Carlos on keys and guitar, and Ellington on drums. The band is currently recording their debut full-length album, due out in 2016.
