Listen: Freddy & Francine “Safe and Sound”
I have to give mad props to Annie for passing this band along to me today cause I’m loving this! Freddy & Francine was formed in 2008 in Northern California by members Bianca Caruso and Lee Ferris and Since then have produced two albums, the latest being The Briar Patch in 2009. Their sound reminds me of if you put Swell Season, The Mamas and the Papas and country band Sugarland in a blender and mixed it up: Folky with a hint of country in some songs. Check out the video below of their song “Safe and Sound” performed on the Santa Monica Ferris Wheel. I haven’t been on a ferris wheel since probably the 2003 Monroe County Fair double ferris wheel in which someone spit on me! True story. Check out their website here.
