Ethereal Indie Folk Duo Frances Luke Accord Releases Whimsical New Single ‘All The Things’

Within the first ten seconds of listening to indie folk duo Frances Luke Accord’s (FLA) new single, “All The Things,” one can immediately feel the hope and warmth the track brings.

Released January 12th, “All The Things” is a brief two minutes and fifteen seconds of hopeful thinking. The song tells a story of love and light when all there seems to be is darkness. The delicate, airy vocals float over the soft acoustic instrumentation, creating a sense of comfort, instilling in the listener to stay hopeful even in times of loneliness and isolation.

While one could misconstrue Frances Luke Accord as one person/artist, the duo was born when members Nicholas Gunty and Brian Powers started putting their voices together at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, where they both grew up.

The two relocated to Chicago in 2013, releasing two self-produced EPs, and later in 2016, their debut full-length album, Fluke. The release of this album led to the duo’s first national tour, and two more EPs in 2019 and 2021. The duo’s first release, 2012’s Kandote, was a nonprofit collaboration that continually helps fund the Barefoot Truth Children’s Choir in Uganda.

The band’s preceding single, “Saint Mary,” was inspired by a cycling accident that nearly cost Gunty his life- an experience that made him reflect on the fragility of being human. “Saint Mary” followed forthcoming album tracks “Window” and “In My Life,” a hopeful ballad and vocal tour de force reminiscent of Simon & Garfunkel and Peter, Paul, & Mary which features FLA’s mentors and brethren, Darlingside.

On “All The Things,” the voices of Gunty and Powers together effortlessly pulls listeners in with an urge to hear the story being told.

Frances Luke Accord has their upcoming LP, Safe In Sound, set for release February 9th via Two-Dale Records/Tone Tree Music.
