New Music: Frankie Beetlestone

Hailing from Outerbridge in Sheffield, Frankie Beetlestone is one of the most exciting British discoveries that I have come across so far this week.

An effortlessly cool indie-pop sound with captivating lyrics, this talent is creating some fantastic bops – all of which are self-written and produced from his bedroom.

“This song genuinely just came out of thin air. That’s a proper cliche ‘songwriter’ thing to say but it actually did, so leave me alone. It’s basically just an anxious rant about being 19 and taking too many drugs. The chorus started out as a bit of a joke really. You know when you wake up the next day and you say that you’re ‘never gonna drink that much ever again’, it was kind of meant to be that dramatic statement.”
