5.0 out of 5 stars The Hunger: Frankie and the Heartstrings - Frankie and the boys are obviously hungry for success, 14 Sept. 2012
By 
This review is from: Hunger (Audio CD)
The North East has a great history of producing interesting musical talent, from The Animals, through Lindisfarne to the likes of Beth Jeans Houghton, Field Music and now Franky and the Heartstrings.

These Sunderland boys make quite a noise on their debut album. It's an unashamedly rollicking album, as they blend a somewhat `50s teddyboy sensibility with an 80s indie rock style. What results is an album of quite `in your face' music, almost punky at times, rockabilly at others. It's pretty feel good, and guaranteed to get you tapping along to it.

The standout song has to be the title track `Hunger', with its very catchy hook and up-beat attitude. But it is a standout by a very small margin, with a lot of other extellent tracks making up the remainder of the album.

I just loved it. It's an album with a sense of fun about it, and there's a lot to be said for that in today's overly serious indie market. 5 stars. Here's hoping for a follow up?
