Being one of the few bands named after their manager, The Fratellis shot to fame during late 2006, and mainly 2007 when they released their debut album Costello Music.
On this first album, we saw three main singles Henrietta, Chelsea Dagger and Whistle For The Choir.
The Scotts quickly gained recognition as one of the new hot acts of 2006 and 2007, even bagging a Brit Award for Best British Breakthrough Act in 2007.
Since their debut, The Fratellis continued to gather new fans around the UK with their blues-influenced pop songs, touring and visiting the many festivals that the nation offers.
The Fratellis and post-millennium British bands
In the same tradition as The Zutons, Arctic Monkeys, and The Libertines, The Fratellis fitted well into this new movement of British alternative rock acts.
These acts were more bluesy and much louder than early 2000 British acts who had a more polished sound. I’m mainly thinking of bands such as Coldplay, Travis and Keene who all used bigger productions, more strings, acoustic guitars, and piano arrangements.

Well, it’s a big, big city and it’s always the same
Can never be too pretty, tell me your name
Is it out, of line, if I were simply bold to say would you be mine?
Because I may be a beggar and you may be the queen
