This band with Francis Farewell Starlite as frontman could be the next big thing. Francis and the Lights are somewhere in-between funk and soul with a little twist. Their latest album A Modern Promise (2008) have a much more electronic sound than their first album Striking (2007). You could imagine them as a mix of Prince and Hot Chip.
Francis Farewell Starlite is quite an energetic man. He dances in a unique and peculiar way. Check out this amazing video for the song "The Top" and you will understand what I’m talking about.
Check out their website where they have made their two albums available for free download. Until then, we give you two songs from Francis and the Lights.
