The L.A. band Franky Flowers make big, surging, melodic lo-fi indie-rock. The band’s frontman, also named Franky Flowers, is 17, which means he wasn’t even born when this stuff was originally being made, but he seems to have a handle on it anyway. Their single “Sneakers (Sneaky Thing)” has some of the same big-guitar buzz as prime Built To Spill, and that is a very good thing. The tracks’ video is all buzzing, distorted VHS imagery of the band at play, and you can watch it below.
The “Sneakers (Sneaky Thing)” single is out now on Turnstile.
