Despite the intentions of Disco Demolition Night, disco never really went away. The genre’s grooves morphed and changed into new shapes and stripes from the DJ-rooted nu-disco electronic productions of the past 15 years from the likes of Metro Area and recent breakout dance hit Neutron Dance by Dubliner Krystal Klear to the success soul-funk-disco pop of UK duo Jungle. Even the queen of funk, Chaka Khan, has returned to her roots for some orchestral disco on recent new album Hello Happiness.
Franc Moody are London duo Ned Franc and Jon Moody, who embrace disco-funk in glittering dance-pop productions, emboldened by Daft Punk’s studio forays into the recreation of classic disco and funk on Random Access Memories.
Their sound is DIY-driven, which involves finding out that recording the perfect handclap takes three pairs of hands and one pair of Marigold gloves. Salt shakers, radiators and the sound of zipping flies have also been used in their recordings.
Their eight-track mini album Dance Moves encapsulates their appeal in one tight package, head-nodding disco-electronic-funk with an emphasis on earworm choruses.
Live, the band swell to six members to make their intergalactic synth-pop funk soar.
