Montreal based Alt/Indie-Folk collective The Franklin Electric share their latest single “I’ve Been Here Before,” the second track off the upcoming In Your Head EP, out August 2, 2019. Premiering on Indie88, the track is about, “relating to everyday people falling apart, about hopelessness and protecting your defences, and always wanting more,” says frontman Jon Matte. The accompanying video was shot over a two day period in and around Los Angeles. Jon adds, “It was truly special to get to see so much in such a small period of time as I got to walk through so many different heavenly places from sunrise to sunset. I now know what the term SUPER BLOOM means.”
The JUNO-nominated group have also announced a European and Canadian tour that launches this fall. Starting on October 20th in Zurich, Switzerland, the 10 date European tour will take The Franklin Electric throughout Germany and into the UK, before heading to Canada for a handful of dates throughout Quebec. A full list of dates is below.
Since emerging in 2014 with their debut album This Is How I Let You Down, The Franklin Electric have logged nearly 400 shows, canvassing the world alongside everyone from Mumford & Sons and Ben Howard to Edward Sharpe and City and Colour. Along the way, 2017’s Blue Ceilingsmarked a major milestone. Not only did the record produce favorites such as “I Know The Feeling” and “Someone Just Like You,” but it also led to a nomination at the 2018 JUNO® awards in the category of “Breakthrough Group of the Year.” The latter experience set the stage for the forthcoming EP In Your Head. “The theme of the EP is the balance between vulnerability and holding on,” says Jon Matte. “You can’t be so openminded you never stand up for anything. This theme sets the stage for a beautiful realization to happen. I just make honest music for everyday ordinary people. This is what I’m feeling and going through. This is how I explore universal truths we all go through. I always want the art to reflect what’s going on with me.”
