The Los Angeles-based indie-dance duo is comprised of Australian-born Jordan Feller and Southern California native Marc Gilfry. Neil Frances have released their sophomore studio album, 'It’s All A Bit Fuzzy', which comes packed with new, epic collabs and sets the stage for their riveting live show.
Following their 2018 EP, 'Took A While', and their 2022 debut LP, 'There Is No Neil Frances', the collab-heavy 'It’s All A Bit Fuzzy' refines Feller and Gilfry’s natural, club-ready groove with sonic influences ranging from ‘80s/’90s rave culture, ‘70s funk and soul, yacht rock, and classic hip-hop. Alluding to a dizzy night out, followed by a pleasantly woozy morning after, the album started coming together in earnest when Gilfry and Feller discovered the colorful work of abstract artist Angela Bacher, who created the album and single(s) art.
“We kind of reverse-engineered the name, and the meaning after seeing Angela’s artwork. We decided that was the right mood and tone for the album.” Gilfry says. “The last album we wrote was very concept-driven,” adds Feller. “This one, early on, we decided not to go through that again.”
Letting the collaborative process guide them, Neil Frances flexed their curatorial muscles and joined forces with rising talent such as DC-based R&B/dance artist dreamcastmoe, alt-indie singer/producer/multi-instrumentalist St. Panther, and rapper/singer PawPaw Rod, and Chicago duo Drama to create an adventurous, shape-shifting collection.
As Neil Frances prepare to hit the stage, they call their latest set “an ode to house music.” To date, Neil Frances have toured with major acts such as Jungle, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Odesza, and Poolside, and in 2022, they played 16+ festivals and continue in 2023 with at Lollapalooza, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Dusk Music Festival, Corona Capital, and headline runs.
