19 year old bedroom pop prodigy Frankie Beetlestone has shared his new hangxiety ode 'Sober Again'.
The teen talent is part of a new wave of artists re-shaping pop from their bedrooms, a clutch of songwriters taking complete control of their art.
Out now, 'Sober Again' pushes Frankie Beetlestone - his real name, would you believe - to fresh heights, but calm and assured, and lyrically open.
Hailing from Outerbridge in Sheffield this is his debut single proper, and it "genuinely just came out of thin air..."
A song about teen excess and the morning after, Frankie channels all his frustrations and insecurities into one place, and winds up gaining control over them.
He says: "It’s basically just an anxious rant about being 19 and taking too many drugs. The chorus started out as a bit of a joke really. You know when you wake up the next day and you say that you’re 'never gonna drink that much ever again', it was kind of meant to be that dramatic statement."
Tune in now.
