December 1, 2017  /  The Fratellis

Location: Glasgow, UK

FFO: Franz Ferdinand, The Libertines

Label: Cooking Vinyl Ltd.

They’re back! Glasgow’s finest the Fratellis return with ‘Stand up Tragedy’ and it is a cracker. Moving with the times, they have produced jangle pop perfection with 1975 guitars and driving drums and bass, but the band are still jokers. The lyrics are fun filled, cheeky and the instrumentation with its honky tonk pianos and ‘Sympathy for the Devil’ “woo-woos” are too tongue in cheek to be true.

On the track Jon Fratelli said: “I thought the track had a manic, really fun energy to it which would work perfectly with a very unlikely, irreverent love story so I wanted to make it all about old people and one fiery couple.”

‘In Your Own Sweet Time’ their fifth album, will be released on March 9th, 2018, the band are also going on tour in Spring 2018; details here.
