A&R Pick of the Week: Neil Frances

Guest post by Sam Clucas (A&R Scout)

Los Angeles based duo Neil Frances began their partnership writing pop tracks in early 2016, before finding a niche creating stripped-back, alternative versions of iconic numbers. 

Their first two releases, "Dumb Love" and "Back To What I Know" have collectively gained 700K+ streams and were featured on influential playlists such as "New Indie Mix", "New Music Friday AU & NZ" and "Fresh Finds". Their most successful track "Music Sounds Better With You" has gained 1.6M streams to date and was sitting comfortably in the top 20 of the TalentAI charts for over a month towards the latter stages of last 2017.

Their 70's-style sound unveils the duo's inspiration from bands such as Tame Impala and Sure Sure. "Teardrops" (released February 14th) has over 2.6M playlist followers after features on "Ultimate Indie" and "New Indie Mix", making them an interesting prospect heading into Spring 2018 (TalentAI).
