Band: The Fratellis
Where Are They From? Glasgow, Scotland
When Did They Start? 2005
Who Are They? The Fratellis are probably best described as a pop garage rock band, if such a title exists. Their style is similar to that of contemporaries like The Strokes and The Vines, but The Fratellis feature a more “danceable” sound than those acts.
Why Should You Care? Because The Fratellis are just a good, old-fashioned fun rock band. Their two albums feature songs that are easy to bounce to, yet also have a depth that harkens back to some of the best garage rock acts (The Kinks, for example).
What Do They Have to Say?
How Do They Sound?
The rock music scene is home to an immeasurable number of bands and artists, the vast majority of which are not household names. In “Rocking Under the Radar,” I attempt to highlight one of these under-the-radar acts by applying a very basic investigative method. If you want a quick synopsis of a band or artist you may not know about, this is the place to look.
