WATCH: Burning Flame by The Franklin Electric

Our favorite Montrealers, The Franklin Electric, have debuted the music video for their haunting single Burning Flame. The single comes off the alt-folk band’s sophomore album Blue Ceilings which was released earlier this year via Indica Records and also features “I Know the Feeling”, “Walk With You” and “Someone Just Like You”.

Burning Flame, which was filmed in Toronto, features an all-Canadian production team and introduces viewers to 17-year old George who plays the lead in the video.

Lead vocalist Jon Matte had this to say about the video:

“This was a spontaneous last minute addition to the record about the fire that feeds us and brings us to do all the things we do, or ignore the things we don’t do but wish we had. A voice inside most of us that can easily be ignored but the burn is a constant reminder. This video was all about the casting! I walked in the day of the shoot and met George, who plays the main role in this music video. He is the most endearing, honest, pure, yet driven 17 year old kid I have ever met. From that moment I was sold on the director’s story & concept. I invite you to meet George for yourself.”

The band is kicking off their European tour next week before returning to Canada in the fall. They’ll be back at the Mod Club on November 2. Full tour dates below.
