The Fratellis found their audience in the festival crowd!

Being one of the few bands named after their manager, The Fratellis shot to fame in late 2006, and mainly 2007 when they released their debut album Costello Music.

On this first album, we saw three main tunes with Henrietta, Chelsea Dagger, and my personal favourite, Whistle For The Choir.

The Scottish trio quickly gained recognition as one of the new hot bands of 2006 and 2007, even bagging a Brit Award for Best British Breakthrough Act.

Since their debut, The Fratellis have continued to gather new fans around the U.K. with their blues-influenced pop tunes, touring and visiting the many festivals the nation has to offer.

In the same tradition as Razorlight, Arctic Monkeys, Kaiser Chiefs, The Kooks, Franz Ferdinand, and Bloc Party, The Fratellis fitted well into this new movement of British alternative rock acts.

These acts were much louder than early 2000 British acts which had a more polished sound. I’m mainly thinking of bands such as Coldplay, Travis, and Keene. Those bands all used bigger productions, more strings, acoustic guitars, and piano arrangements.

Even though the shift isn’t as clear as when we went from spandex hair metal to Nirvana and Rage Against The Machine at the end of the ’80s/early ’90s, there was a clear shift in what the major labels pushed to the masses.
