Frankie Teardrop – “Chicago”

Frankie Teardrop music

Taking a page from the sound of The Jam and The Ramones, Minneapolis-based group Frankie Teardrop infuse elements of punk and garage-rock into a very polished result, one that touts an abundance of hooks. Whereas many variations of these genres strive for lo-fi distortion, Frankie Teardrop opt for a crisp delivery spearheaded by punchy vocals and jangly guitars. “Chicago” is a pure gem of a track, comparing to the non-stop delivery of The Jam’s “Down in the Tube Station at Midnight“. “Chicago” is off Frankie Teardrop’s debut EP Tough Guy, available now as a name-your-own-price download on Bandcamp.
