Francis And The Lights – “Like A Dream”

Francis and the Lights - Like A Dream

Woah yeah! Its been waaaay too long since we heard from the delicate and beautiful indie pop guru Francis and The Lights but the New Yorker is back in a big way with a new EP. “Like A Dream” is the opening track and the one I’ve had a hard time getting past . The few times I’ve been slow on the repeat button I’ve heard the rest and they are damn good too. Get into it.

FRANCIS AND THE LIGHTS play jams FOR our DAYS as well as our nights

changed my mind in a second if you’d given me one second just to think

♫ Francis and The Lights – For Days

Francis and The Lights don’t get written about without people mentioning two things: their similarity to early Peter Gabriel and the fact that the band incorporated itself into a business instead of signing to a label (awesome). While both of those are intriguing in their own way I am here talk about the music, baby, and that is some real sultry bass-laced stuff that you are gonna want get with, pronto. Francis Farewell Starlite is the man helming this groove-ship lollipop and his smooth and soulful voice fits perfectly with his brand of throwback sex-pop. His new EP/LP is the 8-song It’ll Be Better which is streaming here and I can recommend it as the next interlude to some good (steamy) times. It’s out digitally now and will be out physically in July.
