Frenetics – Broken Hand EP
I’m loving this at the minute – it’s full of that early Arctic Monkeys swagger and attitude which is desperately lacking in a lot of ‘guitar bands’ at the minute:
‘Ella’ is the lead single from Sheffield/Leeds band Frenetics’ first EP, Broken Hand, which is out on 11 June.
As well as a hint of their Yorkshire counterparts Arctic Monkeys, the EP also has a few nods to the angular riffs of early Suede and some post-punk atmospherics. All in all a good combination of influences that instantly puts Frenetics near the top of my ‘ones to watch’ list. Well it would do if I had the time to make one, anyway.
To promote the release of the EP, Frenetics have got a few gigs booked, so if you like what you hear above then get yourself down to one and see them live:
