Australian award winning producer Plutonic Lab teams up with vocalist Natalie Slade to form the duos new project FRANCO.The name FRANCO came about from Natalie’s train journeys to and from Leigh’s studio,
travelling past the old, weathered Franco Cozzo furniture store sign, just as Leigh texted to say
‘what should we call ourselves?’.
Musically inspired by just about everything, from the great jazz singers, golden era hip hop and slow jams, to artists like Willy Mitchell, Ennio Morricone, J Dilla, John Carpenter, Brian Wilson, Q-Tip, and soul singers like Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, and Curtis Mayfield.
The duo have been steadily writing and recording their debut EP over the last 6 months and are just now starting to share what they’ve been working on.With a live show consisting of electronics, live drums and vocals, the duo blend strands of R&B, electronic and indie into meaningful and beautifully crafted songs.
