“All-girl garage group The Franklys come on with a smattering of Hives gusto.” -NME
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 Zoe 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, which included playing both the Main Stage and the XFM Stage at Strawberry Fields Festival in Leicestershire as well as shows in Germany and Norway.

“This is classic old school rock, this is riotous girl rebellion, above all, this is frankly something you should be getting yourself some of.”
– Shindig! Magazine/Happening!
