Following off her debut EP ‘Brave,’ Fran Lobo drops remix from duo Glows of the title track ‘Brave’. The track is the second following a remix from Loraine James in a series of remixes for a forthcoming remix EP out at the end of the year. Fran Lobo has had an eclectic and fascinating career in the musical underground for the last several years. Having released two solo EPs and worked as a member of Deep Throat Choir, she collaborated further on DTCx Simian Mobile Disco’s lauded collaborative album ‘Murmurations’. As a vocalist she has also toured with trip-hop legends UNKLE as the key vocalist. In 2017 She was invited by Mathew Herbert to support his Barbican show as well as supporting Okay Kaya on her EU tour. Over the past few years she has also realised various sound installations such as ‘Tune In’ at the Southbank Centre and ‘Voicescolourmotion’ an immersive multi-channel choral and light installation at the prestigious Snape Malting's Festival Of New which then went on to be exhibited at London’s V&A Museum. ‘Last year she was selected as one of the Shure 24 by UK curator James Lavelle alongside curators Holly Herndon, Santigold, James Lavelle and Yuri Suzuki. Her debut EP ‘Brave’ for Slow Dance is a dramatic nightmare dream about addiction, reclaiming identity and processing grief: employing rare analogue drum machines and synthesizers, field recordings, live band, choirs and orchestral instruments. Recorded between Stereloab’s Andy Ramsay’s (Stereolab) studio in South London (King Krule, Mount Kimbie) and Massive Attack’s 3D’s studio in Bristol with Bruno Ellingham. The EP was mixed by Jimmy Robertson and mastered by Christian Wright at Abbey Road. Glows is the project of London based audio-visual duo, GG skips and Felix Bayley-Higgins. Heavily involved in the curation of the Slow Dance collective, they’ve experimented in all avenues of London’s arts and music scenes in recent years. From forming EMU, a group welcoming rotating members from the likes of black midi, Young Turks and Sorry for improvised A/V performances at the Windmill, to receiving commissions for immersive installations at the Royal Academy of Arts, they have been incubating at both ends of the spectrum. Support for Glows has come from NME, DIY, and Radio 1 with debut track Perla being voted one of Loud and Quiet’s best songs of 2019. they’ve supported the likes of Squid, Kelly Lee Owens, Sorry, Goat Girl, Black Midi and Mica Levi.
