Frankenstein Bolts are a dream pop duo based in Wexford, Ireland. The band's second album titled 'Aglow & Spark' was released on August 2nd 2017 to critical acclaim. The new album came to fruition following a highly successful crowdfunding campaign, and was recorded at Asta Kalapa Studios with Darragh Nolan. It was mixed by Paul Juggins who also worked on the band's debut, 'Slow Season'. Frankenstein Bolts' music is a hazy blend of folk and dream pop, with elements of early indie. The first single taken from 'Aglow & Spark' was the fleeting guitar pop number, 'Anatomic Major' which has been described as 'toe-tappingly good', and has gained both national and international airplay. The band embarked on a fifteen date nationwide tour to promote 'Aglow & Spark', also stopping off at festivals such as Electric Picnic, Castlepalooza, Vantastival & Hard Working Class Heroes. The second release from 'Aglow & Spark', released in November, is the breezy janglepop number 'Night Whispering' which evokes the stillness of late-night hospital wards.
