Framing Hanley - A Promise To Burn Cover

More than a band that covered a really crap tune once...

We may know them as Youtube stars for their cover of Lil Wayne’s ‘Lollipop’ last year (it’s had seven million hits and counting), but judging by this – their second full-length, Framing Hanley are keen to prove they have more than just a party piece up their collective sleeve. In places they fail miserably (‘Weight Of The World’ is as predictable as rock ballads get), but when they get it right, they can churn out some good old no-nonsense rock anthems. ‘The Promise’ and ‘Back To Go Again’ are undeniably charming and proof enough that this lot can be more than just a band that covered a really crap tune once.
