UK -- Though it’s hard to predict what twists and turns this New Year will take, one thing that’s certain is that it will be filled with the funky, hard-rockin’, and soulful sounds of the UK’s Uncle Frank! With their forthcoming “Love Lion” album due out this March, fans will get yet another small taste of the group whose tracks have been described as having a “lush soul vibe, hip hop and street sounds and some genius songwriting” when they release the Double A-Side “Love Lion / Tokyo”!
The band, made up of multi-instrumentalists and producers Frank Benbini (also one third of The Fun Lovin' Criminals) & Naim Cortazzi, the band has garnered National Radio plays from Huey Morgan on BBC6 Music and BBC Radio 2 and A-listed on Regional Radio throughout the UK. Already having made waves in 2016 with features in The Sun, Spindle Magazine, Music-News.com and The Daily Star, Uncle Frank took the last ever CMJ Music Festival by storm in October 2015 at Fat Baby in New York described as 'The best Band at CMJ without a doubt' by Spindle Magazine.
Uncle Frank were signed to an unprecedented 3 album deal in 2013 by MITA Records, and their first single 'STEP INTO MY ROOM' was supported by an innovative tour of fans houses, performing concerts in their living rooms. This was featured by BBC 1 Television Evening News which reached an audience of 600,000 viewers.
"The world needs this kind of music - because it's real and self-made, feel-good and original.”- Uncle Frank
Taking a more 80’s-esque turn, the synth-rock stylings of “Tokyo” bring a more pop-driven quality that will keep listeners clapping and singing along until day break!
