IN YOUR HEAD EP OUT AUGUST 2 VIA NETTWERK
Recently signed to Nettwerk Records, The Franklin Electric are sharing the new video for “Made It Up In Your Head”, the lead single from their In Your Head EP, due out August 2. On the video, frontman Jon Matte tells Exclaim!, "Life sometimes feels surreal and dream-like and there's no better place to represent that than the desert and the hazy Los Angeles. We all know how it feels to be stuck in a spiral of ideas we've made up in our heads. For me, being able to explore and discover things is a way to get out of my head. It’s something I try to do as much as possible, even on tour."
The Montreal based, JUNO Award nominated collective, founded and fronted by Matte, transforms experiences into anthems. 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 Ceilings marked 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 open-minded 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.”
