FOLIO’s sound straddles the fence between visceral alt-rock energy & sensuous electro. Think Killers & Interpol meet Duran & New Order. Debut EP, Great Divide, due late Summer 06.

Since its inception in 2005, Los Angeles based quartet FOLIO has had a big vision: to create a pogo-inducing hybrid of modern alt-rock energy and classic new wave sounds. Initially inspired by the crisp output of current indie and post-punk influenced bands such as The Killers, The Bravery, She Wants Revenge, Interpol, and Franz Ferdinand, FOLIO’s recipe throws out any hint of punk influence and substitutes a marriage of prominent, vintage synths with driving guitars; carried by a host of sweat-soaked dance grooves, bum-shaking bass lines and indelible vocal hooks. Often channeling classic sonic textures from Duran Duran, Talk Talk, New Order, and Depeche Mode, FOLIO has created a sound uniquely their own.

FOLIO is currently mixing a self-produced 6 track EP and plans to actively seek label support. The early response from advance tracks has generated 35000+ fans and hundreds of hits a day on their Myspace
