“Follow your instinct tells the visions of a world that, for some time, have accompanied the life of an artist engaged in songwriting which could tell, in a simple, empathetic and light way, the awareness of rare sensations.
Follow your instinct starts with Fireworks and we can immediately taste the indie rock soul of Francesca Garavelli.
The music of Fran & The Groovies is really enchanting to listen to and Fireworks is a clear demonstration of these words. The guitar passages of this song are fantastic.
Then there is Run Run Baby with lively percussion at its beginning and with the usual guitar that embellishes the music of Fran & The Groovies thanks to its delicacy. Some nervous and graceful parts with the piano take part too.
The gaps are determined and pleasant. The third piece of the Ep is Fly. Here, as elsewhere, indie rock and pop rock mix wonderfully. The initial arpeggio is very emotional and Francesca accompanies it in a divine way.
The fourth piece of the EP is called The park. Here, in the same way, we are in line with the rest of the EP. In this song we find, at times, spurts of light in the form of sound waves. After a minute the song acquires so much intensity and dynamism and Francesca softens every heart singing. She is the soul and the essence of Fran & The Groovies. After a pause, the song restarts, demonstrating a structure at different speeds. This is repeated.
Give me is the bonus track, of which there is also a video on Youtube. Here electro suggestions seem to cause to the music of Fran & The Groovies an inspiring dreampop. Give me is the most interesting piece of Follow Your Instinct, a certainly amazing ep. Give me is the piece that works better: in fact, in this song both the refrain and the sonorities are extremely spot-on.
In our opinion, in Follow Your Instinct, the combination of pop rock and indie rock works wonderfully.
Listening to this ep, the thoughts go to artists like Alanis Morissette, Elisa, The Cranberries and Sixpence None The Richer.
If there is even a song that encroaches upon dreampop it is ‘bingo’! To be successful, Fran & The Groovies have to follow the work of Give me. Great keyboards in this band in addition to the lead vocalist: they confer another quid which is very interesting to listen to.”
