Montreal-based alt-folk band, The Franklin Electric have released their new single, “Are We Together Now”.
Jon Matte comments on the single,
“This tune is about how disconnected we are from each other and mainly ourselves, too busy chasing a false sense of satisfaction and feeding that emptiness. Social media culture sells ideals & dreams while mental health issues are drastically on the rise. After seeing myself venture down this shallow road of quick thrills and avoiding my true self, the song was written to shed a light on these feelings that bring us together in this disconnection, a craving for something real.”
The band had a great trip to the 2018 Juno Awards after their nomination for “Breakthrough Group of the Year”, and had the chance to participate in various pre-Juno events including Juno Fest.
