Franc Moody are London duo Ned Franc and Jon Moody, who embrace disco-funk in glittering dance-pop productions, emboldened by Daft Punk’s studio forays into the recreation of classic disco and funk on Random Access Memories.
Their sound is DIY-driven, which involves finding out that recording the perfect handclap takes three pairs of hands and one pair of Marigold gloves. Salt shakers, radiators and the sound of zipping flies have also been used in their recordings.
Their eight-track mini album Dance Moves encapsulates their appeal in one tight package, head-nodding disco-electronic-funk with an emphasis on earworm choruses such as Dance Moves or the pristine four-million streamer and digital-bass and guitar groover Dopamine.
Franc Moody have released the funky antidote we all need to get through. Dream In Colour, released on 28 February, is Franc Moody’s first full-length album.
