Since emerging in 2014 with their debut album, The Franklin Electric have logged over 400 shows, canvassing the world alongside artists such as Mumford & Sons, Ben Howard, Half Moon Run, and City and Colour before headlining their own tours. A showcase for Matte's songwriting talent and the band's impressive musicianship, This Is How I Let You Down immediately caught the attention of music critics and fans alike with its haunting melodies and thoughtful lyrics. The Franklin Electric quickly became a fixture on the Montreal music scene, playing sold-out shows and earning rave reviews for their live performances. Their next album, 2017’s Blue Ceilings, marked a major milestone for the band, leading to a nomination at the 2018 JUNO Awards in the category of Breakthrough Group of the Year. Building on this momentum, TFE released their full-length LP In Your Head / In Your Heart in 2020, accumulating over four million streams of the title track “In Your Heart” alone. The following year, the group released the EP Never Look Back, and full-length album This Time I See It. Never Look Back was nominated for Album of the Year - Reinterpretation at the 2021 ADISQ Awards, celebrating Matte’s reimagining of previous The Franklin Electric songs. Last year, The Franklin Electric released five singles which saw the group triple their monthly listeners within six months. The popularity of these singles cemented The Franklin Electric’s status as one of Quebec’s preeminent indie bands while broadening their reach internationally. 2023 is shaping up to be one of the most definitive in the group’s career as they’re poised to take a massive leap forward stylistically and commercially with the release of their fifth album Oh Brother.
