We’ve been long-time supporters of Finnish band French Films, dating back to the middle part of 2010 when their first song, “Golden Sea”, came to our attention. (But we are certainly not supporters of the French cinema, which is largely strange and non-linear and too high brow for our simple American minds.) Back then I described their sound as having “channelled The Cure musically and Peter Murphy vocally”, and the five-piece hasn’t strayed from that formula in the intervening time.
The band has a new song out this morning entitled “All Summer Long”, which is just in time for getting on all your summertime drinking playlists, and for your road trip playlists, and for whatever else you do with your longer days and warmer nights. Mine generally involve grilling and beer.
I’m putting the mp3 below, but I encourage you all to sign up for the band’s mailing list as well via the embedded form below, which is how I got it. Trust me, you want to know what these guys are putting out in the future.
