Franc Moody Announce New Album ‘Into The Ether’ | News

Franc Moody will release new album ‘Into The Ether’ on September 2nd.

The new album comes as Franc Moody prepare to play London’s KOKO on September 1st, a show that sold out almost instantly.

New album ‘Into The Ether’ was built in the aftermath of their debut LP ‘Dream In Colour’, with the pandemic wiping out their touring plans.

Opting to continue writing, Franc Moody explain: “It was during those months our longing to be out on the road with the band playing live shows developed into a dreamlike state, conjuring up imagery of us and the band travelling through the desert on a journey to find whatever it was that we were craving. A surreal, craggy, tin can tour-bus, deserted petrol station version of The Odyssey if you like. This imagery of expansive desert landscapes was hugely inspired by films directed by the likes of Sergio Leonne, and the grand thematic scores of composers such as Ennio Moriconne.”

“Weve tried to create our own little funk fuelled version of that expansiveness and longing, using a large string ensemble, group vocals and layered synths and guitars to create western style motifs, and galloping guitars to emulate riding through the desert on horse back. We hope you find a place to escape to when listening through this record, as we did whilst writing it.”

New single ‘I’m In A Funk’ is online now, and it leads fans into the world of their incoming second album. The group comment: Weve always been up in Space when it comes to our music. But with this album, we really want to take things down to the desert.

Tune in now.

‘Into The Ether’ will be released on September 2nd.
