Franc-Blanc: Since it's been so long

Music // Monday, 07 Apr 2014

Franc-Blanc is the bi-coastal duo of Graham French and Danny White, who after years of performing under the radar as Dangraham, have finished their debut album, "Since it's been so long." The nine tracks span two years of writing from their studio in Balboa Park (SF), to a retreat on Fogo Island in Newfoundland, to Danny's new home in NYC, using all hardware, with the exception of a few "phone-synth-riffs" composed on the Subway.  
 
Drawing inspiration from the plethora of bands they met over their eight-year stint as hack photo/journalists for Thrasher magazine (the Knife, the Presets, LCD Soundsystem, and Sparks, to name a few), the influences boil down to Graham's love of Junior Boys and Danny's obsession with Depeche Mode, creating what the band calls "melancholic synth-pop."
