Neil Frances is a Los Angeles-based alternative pop music duo making music with soul that you can dance to and believe in. Sydney-born Jordan Feller and Southern California native Marc Gilfry met in 2012 and formed the group in 2016, having both relocated to LA from London and New York, respectively, in pursuit of new projects. With Gilfry’s inherent knack for hooks and melodies and Feller’s encyclopedic sonic recall ability and vast knowledge of production, the pair hit it off and began to develop their brand of beat-driven pop ear worms infused with a more organic warmth than most modern electronic dance music. Putting special emphasis on their enthralling live sets—always performed with a multi-piece band and never relying on playback—the group quickly developed a reputation as a must-see stage artist. Their 2018 debut EP, Took A While, with its blend of psychedelic rhythms, vibe-y, infectious grooves, and a raw, funky spirit put Neil Frances firmly on the map and propelled them to tour slots with established acts like Jungle, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Poolside. Steadily building from the ground up since the beginning, the duo has been hard at work on a batch of new music to be released over the course of 2020 and beyond that is sure to expand their reach with its sense of groove and share their sunny outlook grounded in realness.
