Los-Angeles Indie-Dance duo Neil Frances, made up of Jordan Feller and Marc Gilfry have returned with a new single “Standing My Ground” via Nettwerk. The single comes along with the announcement of their sophomore album It’s All A Bit Fuzzy.
The pair have also released an accompanying video by Kyle Jetter which captures Neil Frances “in what could be an outtake from a 90’s acid rave.” Here we find Feller and Gilfry in a VHS scene as they watch themselves on a vintage box television.
Following their 2018 EP Took A While and their 2022 debut LP album There Is No Neil Frances, the collaboration-heavy It’s All A Bit Fuzzy brings in sonic influences ranging from ‘80s/’90s rave culture, ‘70s Funk and Soul, Yacht Rock, and classic Hip-Hop.
The last album we wrote was very concept-driven. This one, early on, we decided not to go through that again.
Letting the collaborative process guide them, Neil Frances joined forces with DC-based R&B/dance artist dreamcastmoe on “She’s Just the Type of Girl,” alt-indie singer/producer/multi-instrumentalist St. Panther on “Let’s Break It Down” and “Head Straight,” and rapper/singer PawPaw Rod on “High” to create a collection.
