Monday Night Residency with Fenech-Soler / Soft Swells

Echo

Los Angeles, CA 90026

8:30pm

Fenech-Soler is a band from Kings Cliffe, United Kingdom, that formed around 2006.Fenech-Soler released their debut album on September 27th 2010 on B-Unique. It’s an album that begins with a blast, its opener Battlefields launching with a heavenly chorus of voices, Golden Sun plays with rhythms that summon up the sultriness of desert heat; The Great Unknown takes a distant echo on French House in new, dizzying directions. And of course Stop And Stare play-listed at Radio 1 in May 2010, and reached Top 10 of the Dance and Indie singles chart.

Soft Swells. Sure it’s a band name (in fact, it’s this band’s name), but it is also a surfing term. So if the band’s previous work could be described as soft swells, than their new album Floodlights is like an enormous tidal wave from an action movie. Absolutely everything about the band has gotten bigger. Where once there was just Tim with the help of producer/keyboardist Dave Lynch and a lot of studio magic, there is now a fully formed band.
