Franklin Gotham is back with a fresher sound than ever. His latest single ‘Bulletproof Silhouette’ will have you hooked before the first verse even runs through. If it’s been a while since a new aural discovery made you smile, then Franklin Gotham’s amiable approach to Alternative Americana spliced with Power Pop is sure to do the trick.
As the track playfully meanders through the melodically angular ecstasy served up by the acoustic arrangements, it is further amplified by the digital effects, suggesting that Franklin Gotham may just be one of the most prodigal contenders in an otherwise static genre.
The Virginia based artist’s radio ready Indie Pop single comes to life through the sweetly narrative lyrics which are unflinching and as resonant as they come. We all know that heart-wrenching feeling of lusting after someone that’s just a little too cool for you. Yet no one has versed it rapturously as Franklin Gotham.
