Published Oct 13, 2015Françoise share more than just their first names in common — the Montreal-based duo see eye-to-eye on a polished pop aesthetic that they're ready to unveil to the world, and Exclaim! has got the premiere of their latest track "To the Stage."
Blending effervescent synths and mesmerizing drum machine patterns with deep shoegaze-y vocals, the pair give off a vibe that's as reverent to '80s tradition as it is refreshing. Proving that happy mistakes can happen, the track actually emerged when a faulty synth got stuck on arpeggio mode.
Sweeping and cinematic, but still upbeat and fun, "To the Stage" will appear on the band's upcoming four-song EP that is slated to arrive on Visage Musique in 2016. For now, get acquainted with Françoise by giving the new single a spin in the player below.
