Frankie + The Studs might look like a lot of rock groups we've seen in the past, but certainly nothing like the ones we see today. The Hollywood four-piece dress in 70's gothic, punk- glam, and have a penetrating sound to accompany frontwoman, Frankie Clarke's charcoal lined gaze.
As a whole, the band is a throwback to another era, and as the daughter of Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke, Frankie was born with rock music in her veins. With an obvious comparability to Joan Jett, Clarke also emulates a bit of Courtney Love with a smattering of Bowie. What we liked the most about Frankie + The Studs, is that they're fun, and not the type to take themselves too seriously.
Since it's almost the weekend, we recommend blasting this sticky-soled track on your way to the dive bar.
