‘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
'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’
Naomy Jeremiah - Down The Front
'Imagine Prince, Nine Inch Nails, Suede and Pink Floyd collapsing into an absinthe-induced cloud of beauty and throw in a brutally powerful rock backbone'
