J. Francis returns with his latest album ‘To Adore‘ this week, his third full length (in as many years). The Brisbane-based solo artist (Julian Pearce) first impressed with 2013’s ‘Almost’ and followed it up last year with ‘Tired’. J. Francis produces the shyest bedroom pop imaginable, with equal parts jangle pop, new wave and dream pop. The title track ‘To Adore’ is one of his most accomplished efforts to date, an introspective gem. But there’s a number of stand outs, like the Cure-esque ‘Hang Up On Me’ and my personal fave, the bleak lament ‘Float, Sway’. J. Francis – ‘To Adore’ [LP Stream] to adore by j. francis Visit J.
