“Front man Ben Duffy’s energy was infectious, and the genuine excitement of the band to be debuting new music to these London concertgoers meant that the energy never lulled for a moment, and was carried largely by the punchy vocals.” – The Upcoming

“…with turbulent synths and psychtronica layers. It’s a glorious piece of pop fun – and a must have for your festive party playlists.” – The Line of Best Fit

 

“Powered by stuttering synths and an addictive, unabashedly poppy chorus, if you’re into the louche funk of Whitest Boy Alive or the feel-good vibes of Phoenix’s ‘1901’ this is your new Friday fuck it all anthem.” – Noisey

 

 

UK’s FenechSoler have announced a North American tour in support of their new album Zilla. The tour will kickoff in April with Arkansas band Knox Hamilton and will make stops in DC, Philly, New York City, Detroit, Austin and more. FenechSoler will also perform in Denver, Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles in May. All tour dates below.

FenechSoler released their album Zilla earlier this year on February 3 via So Recordings. The bold, shimmering, eclectic pop of ZILLA heralds a thrilling new chapter for the Northamptonshire band, now a duo comprising brothers Ben and Ross Duffy. Loaded with personality and pockets of experimentation, ZILLA is full of positive and upbeat pop songs. The track “Kaleidoscope” was premiered by Huw Stephens on Radio 1 and described by Noisey as “3:39 of pure joy.”

The seeds for ZILLA‘s creation were first sewn at the end of a lengthy tour in support their 2013 album Rituals (which featured the singles “All I Know” and “Magnetic”), the follow-up to 2010’s self-titled debut. Having landed a Q Awards nomination, toured with everyone from Kelis to Miike Snow to Robyn, successfully battled cancer (Ben was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2011), and played headline shows all over the world – including Shepherd’s Bush Empire at the end of their last major UK tour – the band needed a break.

Inspired by disco, old soul vocal harmony groups and an unwavering love of pop music, the pair steadily built up a collection of their most vibrant songs yet. While previous albums have seen them collaborate with the likes of Tim Goldsworthy,  Galantis  and Star smithZILLA was a much more organic album, with most of it self-produced. A glorious, unashamed pop album that will sound incredible in a live setting, ZILLA is the sound of a band confidently coming to terms with their sound while steadily refining it.
