The Fratellis became an indie rock group back in 2005, consisting of the Scottish founders Jon Fratelli, Barry Fratelli and Mince Fratelli. They launched their premier album in 2006, Costello Music, which rose to No. 2 in the UK charts and stayed there for three weeks. The album also landed in the top 100 charts in seven other countries and nine charts in total. The song "Creepin Up the Backstairs" became their breakthrough hit. Additional song favorites include "Henrietta" and "Flathead." Another popular song, "Chelsea Dagger," even became the featured song of the NHL Stanley Cup-winning Chicago Blackhawks. Despite a few songs making it to the top 40 and top 20 of various charts in some countries, the group decided to temporarily dismantle in 2011 to take on other projects individually. The group returned with gusto in 2013 and launched a third album titled We Need Medicine. Today, they continue to woo audiences into delight with their witty, infectious and melodic lyrics and music throughout their live performances.

Unlike many other bands, The Fratellis have only released five albums in their nearly 15 years as a band. Their success happened rather quickly from the time of their first performance at a pub in Glasgow to the recording studio in LA. In the time since they regrouped in 2013, they have released three more albums.
Who are The Fratellis musical influences?
The Fratellis have been open about The Beatles having influenced their music. However, they give props to Tony Hoffer for having the most influence over their defining musical style in the early days. Tony is a music songwriter, producer and music mixer who has worked with The Fratellis over the years.
Which other well-known groups are often referred to as similar to The Fratellis?
The Fratellis claim to have met while working at a traveling fairground that Barry's father owned. It was during this time they discovered their mutual love of music history and bonded over their collection of odd jobs, such as a nursing home attendant, a former car thief and a lion tamer.Back to Top
