Band of the Week: Franklin

Alt/indie five-piece Franklin feature on shmuFM

This week's featured band is Franklin! You can hear them live on the Band Of The Week Show on Monday the 26th of January from 8-10pm, with our guest presenters Aron Smith and Bob  where you'll hear some of their studio tracks, and and tunes that have inspired and influenced Franklin as a band - as well as getting to know the band and what they're up to.

Franklin is an alternative/indie rock band from the silver city of Aberdeen, formed in June 2013. Earlier this year, Franklin performed at the O2 ABC in Glasgow - in front of some of the most influential members of the music industry - as part of the UK Soundwave competition that they auditioned for last year, when they sent a couple of tracks in to be judged - you can hear these tracks at their Soundcloud.

The band as a whole is continuously working hard to achieve the best sound from their talents and constantly strive for great song writing. Most of the members are either at college, school or full time work but they always make time for Franklin and hope that one day this will be their full time careers.

As well as the Band of the Week Show, you can hear Franklin's tracks on any of our live shows by getting in contact with the studio on 01224 483413, by texting 60300 (type SHMU, leave a space and then your message) or by emailing

The Band Of The Week Show is repeated every Friday at midnight until 2am on 99.8FM, and you can listen to the show here on our website using the live stream or Listen Again feature.
