Even if you’ve only had a passing interest in Northern Irish music™ over the last few years there’s a strong chance you’ll already be somewhat acquainted with Belfast quartet Franklyn. Three-quarters of the sadly departed General Fiasco, the Owen Strathern-fronted outfit recently re-animated in style with single ‘We Don’t Want To Live’, an emphatic debut track “about people having the life beaten out of them, feeling like there is nothing you can do to change, losing your fight and not even being that bothered about it.”

An equally assured effort clocking in at under three minutes, new track ‘Pleasure’ effortlessly underlines the Belfast band’s mission to write a straight-up, Summer festival-worthy indie-pop banger that aims straight and unapologetically for the airwaves. Currently in the studio working on a new release, check out our exclusive stream of ‘Pleasure’ by Franklyn below.
