Jukebox: Frankie & The Heartstrings - "I Still Follow You"
Perhaps the most obvious change is the shift in emphasis from sharp and direct instrumental hooks to a noticeably more vocal-centric approach. Sure, Mick Ross and Michael McKnight still weigh in with a delightful dose of jangly Marr-esque guitar licks, but here the spotlight is very much on Frankie Francis, whose fabulous layered performance is topped off by the band's first true knockout chorus. Perfectly complimented by Butler's glossy production, it's a cut that's sure to see expectations soar ahead next year's sophomore - and having heard some of the new material live I can confirm there's far more where it came from!
"I Still Follow You" can be streamed and downloaded for free from Frankie & The Heartstrings' official website.
