Fenech-Soler Sign to Warner Brothers' Label B-Unique, Release Debut US Single in March
Starting out in Kings Cliffe, a small village in the hinterlands of Northamptonshire, brothers Ben and Ross Duffy joined up with friend Daniel Soler and started to make music. Tapping into their influences - The Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk, Soulwax, SMD - the boys started writing their own electronic tracks using laptops and synthesizers. Drawing from more diverse influences - George Benson, N.E.R.D., The Whispers, Michael Jackson and Queens of The Stone Age - the band began to flesh out their sound. Eventually the another mutual friend, Andrew Lindsay came along and broght another element to the group - live drums and synths - an ingredient which would help turn their music into what it is today.
Starting out playing small clubs, Fenech-Soler gathered experience under their wings and started to make a name for themselves based on their live sets. The band's big break came when French DJ/remixer Alan Braxe asked to release one of their songs - "The Cult of Romance" - which Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac would later feature on her 2009 compilation. Groove Armada saw the foursome play a party and subsequently asked Fenech-Soler to join them on tour, even featuring Ben as lead vocalist on the single, "Paper Romance." What a whirlwind!
"Demons" will be the first single released in the U.S. The single is "a dizzying shot of Parisian synths and pop melody, a typically immediate tale of late night confusion and self doubt, propelled with urgent dance floor beats." Check it out on February 7th in the UK and on March 15th in the US. Expect some HOT remixes to boot. A full length album and U.S. tour dates are expected so stay tuned!
