  • The Bank will release Upper Class via Bearfunk in August. The Bank are the Italian trio of Francesco Brini, Domenico Loparco and Emanuele Zullo. Combined, they have a varied pedigree as backing instrumentalists in a number of contexts—they've toured as the backing band for American singer/songwriter Jeff Jones, for example. More relevant to the dance music world, Brini has released music as Frank Agrario for Prins Thomas' Internasjonal label and has played as a drummer for Swayzak. The trio have a funk-indebted disco sound played on live instruments, comparable to acts like Chic. Tracklist 01. City Of The Dead 02. Winka Wonka 03. Afro Sundays 04. The Grey Booze 05. Chic Disco 06. Fishsticks 07. The Snatch 08. Lagos Tahoe Bearfunk will release Upper Class on August 27th, 2012.
