Dream Frankie Dream are pretty much what you’d get if a pop-rock group procreated with a surfboard; a really cool surfboard, at that.

The emerging band manages to perfectly balance an energetic and addictive sound with a cruisy vibe, as demonstrated in their latest single ‘Mistake’.

‘Mistake’, which was released today, is the sixth single released by the band and is their second since rebranding from Business to Dream Frankie Dream.

As well as their new release, the boys have also announced their first east coast tour, which will see them perform in Brisbane, Byron Bay, Sydney, Wollongong,  Central Coast and their hometown on the Gold Coast with special guests Billie Eternal making an appearance in limited cities.
