‘The perfect mix of Pink Floyd, Tool, Nine Inch Nails, Nick Cave and The Doors. Francesco Fonte Band has taken certain aspects of the aforementioned groups, and melded it together to come up with their own unique sound’
Dan AKA - Ronon
‘This band has a huge sonic footprint, I was very surprised they were a trio.
So, a band who have defied description throughout my time listening to them, fantastic, just what I want to hear, what I want to hear more of if I'm entirely honest’
Mike McLaughlin - 3 Songs Out
There are hints of The Cure, Pink Floyd, Bauhaus and Nine Inch Nails but they’re only the slightest flavourings because the Francesco Fonte Band have their own sound. Try the Francesco Fonte Band in your car, on vinyl, through your earphones; anywhere and everywhere but wherever you do listen to them – play them LOUD!
By Martin Frank - York Calling
'It's dark, it's moody, lot of things going on there, a bit of Nine Inch Nails, a bit of Nick Cave, awesome stuff’
