Montreal’s own The Franklin Electric have debuted their brand new music video for “Someone Just Like You” via Exclaim! yesterday.
The latest single comes off the bands sophomore album Blue Ceilings, released last month via Indica Records, that has seen them making appearances on The Strombo Show (CBC Radio 2) and at the National Post Session Studio.
Lead singer Jon Matte talked a little bit about the filming of the video:
After a very strange hot hazy emotional 24 hours with barely any sleep, I found myself in a Melbourne alley with a friend who happened to have his camera on him. My mind was racing, I was honestly completely broken hearted from a relationship that had just ended and he wanted to film something. With no concept in sight I just decided to dance, trying to free my body from the feelings and turbulent thoughts. I’m not a dancer at all but I found myself pulling off my own interpretations of old break-dance steps and freestyle like a maniac, It felt great and he captured the moment on camera”
The band will also be returning to Toronto next week, March 30, for a show at The Mob Club before embarking on a European tour next month.
Born and raised in MTL, I spent most of my teens and early 20’s working in the music industry. I made the permanent move to Toronto in 2013 where I joined the team at the Canadian Independent Music Association as the Music Export Assistant. I spend my days working with and promoting incredible indie Canadian artists and companies across the world.
Music journalism and photography have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember, as I jumped on board Confront Magazine a few years after it formed and ran it as the Editor-in-Chief for 7 years, right up until its recent closure.
I love to spend my spare time running to and from concerts, cheering on my hockey team (Go Habs!) and getting lost in nature whenever I can.
