Virginia’s Franklin Gotham wants that warm embrace to shatter the silence on, ‘Not Enough’

Taken off their well-received 2-track EP called ‘Lucky Enough‘, Franklin Gotham show us their genuine energy that transmits only goodness into a picture that has sadly shattered on, ‘Not Enough‘.

Franklin Gotham is an Alexandria, Virginia-based indie Americana/pop 3-piece band who carefully assembles that likeable blend of music that is perfect for the whole family.

Millennials may hear bits of Vampire Weekend, Death Cab for Cutie, and Wilco while those with a longer listening history may be reminded of Joe Jackson, Paul Westerberg, and Marshall Crenshaw.” ~ Franklin Gotham

After healing our hearts with their stellar single ‘Without Being Alone‘ from 2021, Franklin Gotham returns with something rather remarkable that shall set you free from any previous dismay, as they combine rather beautifully together and eloquently shows us their growing excellence.

Not Enough‘ from Alexandria, Virginia-based indie Americana/pop 3-piece band Franklin Gotham is one of the most caring tracks you might hear today. Directing us into the notion that sleeping alone can make you sad if you are used to the love of someone who had you feeling like you are rather amazing, this is a release filled with hope and that tender touch.

After all, being with that special heart who makes you laugh as no one else can is the best feeling ever.

Franklin Gotham has released their stoically stellar single, Without Being Alone.

Franklin Gotham’s latest single, Without Being Alone, is a tender power-pop embrace that you’ll want to fall into time and time again for the comforting vintage tones, dreamy doo-wop vibes and compassionate lyricism. If you can imagine what Pavement would sound like if they picked up the same romanticism as Syd Barrett, you will be able to get an idea of the sticky-sweet euphoria delivered.

Without Being Alone stoically explores the kind of love that leaves you on the sidelines exploring the infinite possibilities with impassioned impatience. If it’s been a while since you looked at love with rose-tinted glasses, the sweet succinct melodies in this synaesthesia-inducing single will efficaciously remind you.

Without Being Alone is now available to stream and purchase on all major platforms via this link.

Be There For You: Vibrant Virginia band Franklin Gotham wishes they could offer support on ‘I Can’t’

As he wonders why he can’t be there like she was for him, Franklin Gotham returns with a striking story about how sometimes the heart just won’t let you get in too deep on ‘I Can’t‘.

Franklin Gotham is a likable pop infused Americana three-piece act from Alexandria, Virginia. They bring that catchy music to the fore, that has your heart alight with possibilities, whilst providing us a soundtrack to jump right into the upcoming summer days.

With a punchy acoustic tone and fresh vocals that entrenches in your mind, you feel the sense of regret in his voice as he knows that he needs to be there, but just isn’t able as she has moved on and you miss those moments together.

The visuals are fun to watch on this exciting music video at the fair — and you feel engrossed into their story that you have felt before in your life — when you needed to be present to help out.

I Can’t’ from the awesome three-piece Alexandria, Virginia band Franklin Gotham, shows us into the light to where you want to be but feel its best to rather give them space. You know you need to do this simple thing, however you are madly in love with them and don’t want to ruin that special friendship.

Franklin Gotham – Keeping On: A Choral Americana Power Pop Masterpiece

https://franklingotham.bandcamp.com/track/keeping-on

With each new release from Franklin Gotham, they surpass the expectation which their preceding single set. Their new evocatively powerful single Keeping On feels so timely it is practically serendipitous.

The Virginia, US-based Americana Power Pop artist has a tendency to craft melodies which are sharp and succinct enough that you’ll feel them scratching away at your soul. Keeping On is definitely no exception. The harrow of the previous 6-months has evidently had a profound impact on Franklin Gotham’s equally as profound production style.

The dreamy melodicism in Keeping Melodicism is enough to disrupt your rhythmic pulses as the angular guitar licks explore the full tonal palette. Optimism rings in the shimmering highs of the guitar notes as much as it does in Franklin Gotham’s gentle, reassuring and downright stunning vocals. It’s hard not to feel a little emotional while listening to the tender compassion contained in this choral Power Pop masterpiece.

You can check out Keeping On for yourselves by heading over to Bandcamp.
