Jon Matte had this to say about the filming of the music video for “Someone Just Like You”:
“After a very strange hot hazy emotional 24 hours with barely any sleep, I found myself in a Melbourne alley with a friend who happened to have his camera on him. My mind was racing, I was honestly completely broken hearted from a relationship that had just ended and he wanted to film something. With no concept in sight I just decided to dance, trying to free my body from the feelings and turbulent thoughts. I’m not a dancer at all but I found myself pulling off my own interpretations of old break-dance steps and freestyle like a maniac, It felt great and he captured the moment on camera”
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 quickly racked up over 250,000 Youtube views, launching the band into the spotlight. The Franklin Electric amassed an avid fanbase and rave reviews after 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.
