Formerly, we were known as a group of high school friends. A few years after graduation, we realised we were far better suited to playing music together, and we decided to start a band. From this, 'Fresco' was born. ‘Separate’ is our debut single, and we're overwhelmed by the amount of support we've received since its release.
Fresco are the latest signing to new boutique publisher/artist development company Double Drummer, following 'Why We Run' and 'Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird'.

“A soaring indie pop anthem that seamlessly combines earthy beats, sparkling guitar lines, dreamy, falsetto-laden melodies and lush synths.” - Best Before
“A meeting of electronic, soul, rock, indie and pop, this Brisbane band are redefining “artpop” with their intriguing genre blending.” - Music Is My Muse
“Super dreamy with thoughtfully placed beats that perfectly frame Mr. Balmer’s soaring vocals (which are hard not to swoon over). Expansive and emotional.” - The Revue (Canada)
