Single Review: Frank Turner – Losing Days

By on Wednesday, 31st July 2013 at 12:00 pm

When Frank Turner and a load of his fans get tattoos in a music video, it’s fucking cool. It’s rock ‘n’ roll and just goes to show the devotion of his fans. They may as well be like the Frankettes, or Turnerphiles, I dunno. Something to make One Directioners puke up their porridge at least.

When Jared Leto asks fans to get tattoos for a Thirty Seconds to Mars video, he gets unified calls that he is in fact, a bellend. Perhaps that shows the contempt that Mr. Leto provokes in some sections of music fans, or perhaps it just shows the authenticity of the support for Frank. He didn’t have to put a call out to get this done, people just did. For Frank.

That’s pretty much the central theme for Frank’s new video for ‘Losing Days’, from his new album ‘Tape Deck Heart’ (review by Cheryl here). Following on with the theme of the album so far, it’s as expected a pretty gut wrenching tune, more reminiscent of his earliest work, than his most recent releases. ‘Tape Deck Heart’ is not one for the faint hearted, who joined in on the good ship Turner for tuneful ditties about travelling, like ‘The Road’. No, ‘Losing Days’ is deeper subject matter, but again an example of Turner at his heartstring-yanking best.

Blubbers steer clear.
