Review: Francis Bowie EP

Multitalented Dane Francis Bowie provides the perfect soundtrack for the approaching summer months with “Sunny Day”, a track from his EP launched in October last year.

Producing in the electronic/intelligent pop music style, his EP features a range of soaring synthesiser lines together with orchestral backing. The style is light and fresh without falling into the Pop Idol trap.

“IPM is an attempt to put some quality, dignity and honour back into popular music,” Bowie says.

His EP features four tracks. “Endlessly” is delightfully upbeat with plenty of synth evidence.

“Wasting My Time” has an almost sci-fi electronic feel with lots of deep synth action, orchestral strings and piano. Fantastic.

Finally, after “Sunny Day”, comes “Silly And Crazy”, featuring synth zings and altered electric pianos.

Those of you with creativity that extends beyond the music keyboard may also be interested to know that Francis is also a painter, sculptor, designer, writer and gallery owner.
