The Crooks release new single “Frankie”

Chesterfield band and five-piece, The Crooks have released their brand new single “Frankie” via Golden Robot Records. The group, consisting of Jack, Chris, Duncan, Conor, and Tom formed in 2019 in which, since then, they have released a plethora of sounds and tunes including one of their most popular songs “Nevermind”, a song that easily climbed over 100,000 Spotify streams.

Since their formation, The Crooks have acclaimed radio play from the UK’s Radio X, BBC Introducing and have gained support from multiple stations in the USA, South America and across all of Europe. Media outlets such as This Feeling have consistently supported the five-piece as well as their own huge, loyal backing.

Tipped as ones-to-watch for 2020, last year saw the band releasing a number of singles, including “In Time” and “She Walks Alone” securing the band’s intricate rock ‘n’ roll sound, which they gripped in the palms of their hand. Dabbling in their own brit-pop sound, The Crooks are taking a turn and are set to release their most liberating song to date but also shines a light on their melodic wall of sound that everyone has grown to love.

“Frankie” is a track that is built around a fiery guitar solo, and a cacophony of sounds but begins with a hint of mysteria. The carefulness and alluring licks of the guitar create an atmospheric pulse before being pelted into a whirlwind of rock ‘n’ roll swagger. The smooth but endearing vocals wrap around the haunting riffs and it’s by far the most interesting track by The Crooks yet.
