New single in the pipeline...

Francois & The Atlas Mountains have confirmed plans for a new single and a fresh batch of UK tour dates.

A loose knit collective whose music runs between plaintive acoustic songsmithery and tribal, African rhythms, Francois & The Atlas Mountains are a tumbling, unpredictable proposition.

Debut album 'E Volo Love' was a surprising, continually evolving offering which rightly won critical praise. Pushing ahead, the band have picked 'Edge of Town' to be their next single, due to drop on July 23rd.

The single comes equipped with new track 'Ready To Dive'. Built around a circular acoustic guitar riff, the song seems to build in intensity before finally dissolving and fading into bird song and wind rush.

Listen to it below.
