Montreal-based alt-folk band The Franklin Electric has released the video for the soulful and haunting single “Burning Flame”.

The video was filmed in Toronto and features an All- Canadian production team. The band released their highly anticipated sophomore album titled Blue Ceilings earlier this year via Indica Records and includes the singles “I Know The Feeling”, “Walk With You”, “Someone Just Like You” and “Burning Flame”.

The quartet who has amassed more than 5 million streams (Spotify, Deezer) start their tour in Europe this week and will have Canadian dates this fall. The band will perform in London at The Troubadour on 28th September 2017. See below for full EU routing.

Jon's Quote about the song + 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.”

"Blue Ceilings is polished and self-assured, highlighting Jon Matte's multifarious songwriting adroitness" - RnR Magazine

"A muscular piece of folk-driven songwriting, blessed with a poetic touch and a soaring arrangement" – Clash Magazine

"Bouncy-yet-delicate" - Pure Volume

"I find myself overdosing on Matte's sweet melodies and the inspiring instrumentals of this Canadian ensemble to get me through sickness of the heart. I know this feeling" - Indie Shuffle
