 The Franklin Electric — Blue Ceilings (Feb 24, 2017)The Franklin Electric — Blue Ceilings (Feb 24, 2017)ΞØΞ   I love the more electronic and prossesed sounds on the tracks released so far. They add to the style and feeling of the songs in a subtle yet powerful way.
ΞØΞ   After their breakthrough single This Is How I Let You Down, the Montreal band returns with a highly anticipated second album. The Franklin Electric steps up to the next level with Blue Ceilings: music that casts a spell, on a human scale. A mature, fully~formed sound that embraces the riddles of life & love. It’s the human element, the spark. The drive is bigger than ever. Lightning strikes again.

ΞØΞ   A flash of blue across the night sky. Electricity: it is life itself. The spark that fires the brain, the heart, the imagination. The spark that fires Jon Matte and The Franklin Electric. After their breakthrough single “This Is How I Let You Down”, the Montreal band returns with a highly anticipated second album, Blue Ceilings, with music that’s ready to light up the night.
ΞØΞ   After entering and winning a Nashville songwriting competition over 8000 other bands from around the world, opening slots would follow: Ben Howard, Mumford and Sons, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, City & Colour, Half Moon Run. “Bonds are built, and when you tour, it all fuses together.” Matte says. The driving force of a singer~songwriter becomes a brotherhood of the road. Having found their tribe, they’d spend 2015 playing over 180 shows from Canada to Australia — three tours of Europe alone — with reviews ecstatic across the board.
ΞØΞ   Critics and fans were responding to Matte’s voice and his intuitive, compelling songwriting, but also to the singular, standout sound of an instrument still uncommon in pop: the trumpet. “Yeah, the horn’s always going to be a secret weapon,” Matte says, smiling. “Something I can pull out and people go ‘WTF’? To me it’s always been an anthemic instrument — it’s a battle call.”
ΞØΞ   The Franklin Electric steps up to the next level with Blue Ceilings: music that casts a spell, on a human scale. A mature, fully~formed sound that embraces the riddles of life and love. It is the human element. The spark. The drive is bigger than ever. The Franklin Electric and Blue Ceilings: lightning strikes, again.

ΞØΞ   After their breakthrough album This Is How I Let You Down, the Montreal band returns with a highly anticipated second album, Blue Ceilings. Jon Matte (singer, songwriter, producer) had this to say about the upcoming release; “With limitations hanging over us all we found a way to allow this album the time it needed to take its own shape and personality. The cover art fell in our laps like a gift and worked so well with the album title Blue Ceilings done by UK artist Samuel~Burgess Johnson it complemented the feeling of the songs and sums up all the different learnings and challenges along on the way.”
ΞØΞ   The Franklin Electric’s soaring and anthemic debut album, This Is How I Let You Down, was first released independently before catching the attention of Montreal’s Indica Records (Half Moon Run, Phantogram) who were blown away by the band’s sound. The label reissued the LP in 2014 featuring various remixes and two new songs to much critical acclaim for both their recording and their incredible chops live. Striking for both its stunning chord changes and mature musings of life and love, the title track’s video racked up over 250,000 Youtube views and counting, launching the band into the spotlight with a mature, full~formed sound beyond their years.
ΞØΞ   The musical mastermind behind The Franklin Electric, Jon Matte, came by his roots honestly. Matte grew up in a household brimming with music, with musicians, with Mom’s piano at the center of it all. Matte would go on to study jazz, weaving that into a love of everything from hip~hop to Elton John and ‘70s songwriting titans. Legendary label Verve Records soon called on Matte to remix a Nina Simone record. Hanging and learning from great engineers, he realized he could apply everything he learned to his own songwriting. After entering and winning a Nashville songwriting competition over 8000 other bands from around the world, Matte along with his “tribe” Martin Desrosby, Kevin Warren and Ken Pressé, hit the road to rave reviews spending 2015 playing over 180 shows from Canada to Australia — including 3 tours of Europe alone — opening for the likes of Ben Howard, Mumford and Sons, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, City & Colour, and Half Moon Run. The driving force of a singer~songwriter became a brotherhood of the road.
