Ahead of New Album, Fenech-Soler Play Mercury Lounge TonightJanuary 25th, 2017
Influenced by Michael Jackson’s Dangerous, Ben Duffy (vocals), Ross Duffy (guitar), Daniel Soler (bass and keys) and Andrew Lindsay (percussion) formed the English electropop band Fenech-Soler more than 10 years ago, making music in the vein of Klaxons, Two Door Cinema Club and Friendly Fires. They’ve already released two full-lengths, including 2013’s Rituals (stream it below). And while Soler and Lindsay have since amicably departed, the band continues on with the Duffy brothers, releasing the EP Kaleidoscope (stream it below), with “a slick new synthpop sound,” last year. A third long-player, Zilla, comes out next week, but you won’t have to wait that long to hear new tunes from Fenech-Soler (above, performng “Kaleidoscope” live) because they play Mercury Lounge tonight. Brooklyn’s Glassio open the show.
