Once again an electronic duo, and once again from Australia. There is so much great music coming from that continent right now.
Their name is Ted & Francis but they also have another project named Like Woah! Both acts are awesome! This post is going to be about the Ted & Francis project though.
In real life their names are Rhys and David and they are in their early 20’s. They call their music Tropical Pop. And the music carries you away; it’s dreamy synth-pop with catchy beats. Hard not to beat time with one’s foot. They have also done a couple of great remixes, the latest one are a remix of Sébastien Tellier's ”Kilometer”.
The French record label Kitsuné has signed them for a record deal and their debut EP is going to be released in April. Good job by the Frenchmen to pick these guys up. Maybe it’s time for Ted & Francis to hit it off during 2009? We believe so! The song “Erlend” is a real beauty…
