Frances (Live at The Troubadour, London)
It’s Good Friday, and what better way to kick start the Easter weekend with another gig!
Now it doesn’t seem like that long ago we discovered one of our first unsigned artist features. The ambient, ethereal and delicate nocturnal soundscape quickly got us gearing up for a live performance, and all on the strength of one SoundCloud upload! We’re talking of course about Frances.

Fresh off being added to the BBC Introducing playlist, we arrived at The Troubadour for Frances’s debut London show, and what a turn-out it was. Although it was a short set, it was enough to leave us wanting more. Her sound has drawn comparisons to London Grammar, Birdy, Daughter, and even a female Coldplay! Talking of which, does anyone else think the guitarist resembles Chris Martin? No, just us then? Anyway, as we were saying, that is some pretty strong comparisons. Further into the set you get a different perspective, but you’ll just have to wait until she releases more tracks to find out. In the meantime, check out ‘Coming Up For Air‘ live below:
Frances will be returning to London on April 30th at The Metropolitan for Pull The Plug/ASCAP. More music to be uploaded soon.
