Frenchgirls - Indie Artrock Art-Pop Live Act in Leeds

Frenchgirls Short Info

Frenchgirls are an artrock band from Leeds with more instruments than you. Our mums are really proud of us.

Ben Myers sings, Jamie Brigg plays guitar, Thom Dent plays percussion, Luka Radjenovic plays synthesizers, Espen Langli plays bass and Kit Clark plays drums. Usually this all happens at once.

As a band, we have already received acclaim, winning the AMP Awards 2013 and playing headline slots at prestigious Leeds venues such as The Cockpit, The Wardrobe and the O2 Academy. We’ve released one EP and have a single on the way. Sometime in the far-flung future, we’ll release more. Our ultimate ambition is to meet all the greats; we’ve emailed Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain but we haven’t heard back from them yet.

Influences: Kraftwerk, Madonna, Anthony Burgess, jaguars, avant-garde sepiatone pornography, everybody named John McCarthy, Erica, Django Django, Frida Kahlo, the Norwegian Underground Art-Gauche Synth-Pop Movement, Mother Theresa, Everything Everything, New Order off-cuts, the city of Marseille, Radiohead, Defne Cetin Bess the dog and Lou Reed.
