French Admirals at The Cave

  • The Cave 452 W Franklin St Chapel Hill, NC, 27516 United States (map)

French Admirals are DC music scene vets who have been playing in multiple projects in the area for over a decade. The group initially formed as a “gentleman troubadour” acoustic duo project between Robert France (Rob Kuczynski) on vocals/guitars and the Admiral (Mike Lashinsky) on bass. After building momentum with a consistent flurry of live shows and songwriting in 2013, the duo recruited a drummer, added electric guitars and headed into to the studio (Winter/Spring 2014) to record our debut album, "Closer than Brothers" with talented local engineer Peter Larkin over the course of 5 months at Lighthouse & Persona non Grata studios in NOVA. The band has been described as a melodic mixture of brit pop, classic alternative (90's and early aughts) with a touch of post punk and alt country. Pop sensibilities are heavily present and the album runs the gamut from bursts of power pop to acoustic pieces while covering sonic ground in between.
