About Francis and the Lights
In late-2007, they self-released a 0c download EP, “Striking”. In 2008, they released “A Modern Promise” (Aug ‘08, Normative) & a single “LIME / WYN” (Cantora Records). In 2010, they featured on Karaoke, from Drake’s “Thank Me Later” (15 Jun ’10).
The band’s sound is propelled by two live drummers playing in conjunction with sequenced percussion, balanced with intertwining guitar and synth parts. Formed at Wesleyan University, the band’s first show was a performance of the posthumous “The Immortal Otis Redding” record, in its entirety. After secluding himself to write songs (in Oakland, CA), Starlite drove cross-country, in a decommissioned postal truck, to form the band’s current incarnation , in New York. They rehearsed for a year, before unveiling themselves at a series of invitation-only shows, at a white fabric draped warehouse space, featuring spring-loaded keyboards, young coconuts & a chandelier that descended onto the dance floor, festooned with champagne glasses.
