FRANC MOODY – DREAM IN COLOUR (Disco/Funk – UK)
Franc Moody are a London disco-funk outfit masterminded by Ned Franc and Jon Moody. The pair first met when part of a group of musicians who took over an abandoned warehouse in Tottenham: first throwing raucous parties, then cutting their teeth as a live outfit, and gradually articulating a more socially-conscious lyrical concern as Franc Moody.
While Jon was born into a family of classical musicians and grew up on oboes, cellos and violins, Ned was musically educated by the stereo in his parents’ car, blasting old soul, 50s/60s New Orleans music, and the rock n roll sounds of Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Eddie Cochran. All of these influences (and then some) are reflected in their glittering pop productions and irrepressible floor-fillers.
Released via UK-based indie label Juicebox Recordings, Franc Moody’s debut album Dream in Colour is a tribute to the very formation of Franc Moody, and the brother-like friendship between chief collaborators Ned and Jon at its beating heart. A truly feel-good record, it is a glittering collection of disco infused bangers that feels completely necessary in today’s world.
Check out the entrancing, and very appropriately titled, “Something for the Weekend”, which features a truly addictive beat, over the top harmony guitars and guest vocals by Marieke adding so much charisma and melody to the song.
