The Fratelli Sound: Indie garage rock with mansion-size appeal, perfect for dance floors, sports arenas, and everywhere between—think Arctic Monkeys swirled with Elvis Costello
Their Story: Three Scottish lads (Jon, Barry, and Mince Fratelli) played their first show in a Glasgow bar in 2005, made the UK charts with their first single (“Henrietta”), sold millions of their debut album (Costello Music), took home the 2007 Brit Award for Best British Breakthrough Act, and have remained unstoppable ever since.
Are All the Members Really Named Fratelli? Nope. It’s an adopted surname (a la The Ramones) taken from the villains in the The Goonies.
What’s a “Chelsea Dagger”? According to the band, it’s the name of a burlesque dancer. According to millions upon millions of sports fans, though, it’s the stomp-along, sing-along anthem that accompanies every goal of the Chicago Blackhawks and Montreal Impact and, naturally, every win for the Chelsea Football Club.
What’s New: Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied, which The Guardian says, “shows that they haven’t lost their knack for super-catchy melodies that could be bellowed by a crowd.”
What to Expect Live: An abundance of super-catchy melodies, past and present, bellowed by the crowd as the band stands above them like rock idols.
