frankie and the heartstrings are a brand new old-fashioned pop band from sunderland. coming fully formed out of the north-east, the five-piece played their first gig two years ago and have been grafting solidly since, writing and rehearsing at night, holding down full-time jobs working in schools, social care and charity shops during the day. they say that art thrives in the face of adversity, and in a town like sunderland where the young would rather cross fists than swap mixtapes, frankie and the heartstrings are soul-brothers, the dreamers who dared to think big. the edwyn collins produced 'hunger' is a fantastic album of pop songs that recalls the golden era of postcard records crossed with a little dexy's. it demands repeated plays and shouts "we're gonna be massive".
