" Francis Bowie is like a powerful drug – you can’t help but get sucked in after you’re exposed to him once. " - EVOR
" Intelligent Pop Music has found itself a champion in this Prince of Denmark. " - Best Radio For Miles
" The music is highly original, unpredictable as hell and pushes the envelope hard. It’s strong suit – the amazing creative genius of Francis Bowie. I really admire artists out there who are themselves and just let the chips fall where they may. Praise goes out to the artist that can show us something real and genuine beneath their veil of vanity. Francis Bowie is one of those artists." - IndieMusicDigest
"... Bowie’s EP is perfect example that one does not need to sell their soul to make music that is incredibly catchy and impactful.... Francis Bowie is able to insert more of himself in the course of four tracks than many musicians can do over the course of a full album. " - NeuFutur Magazine
"So if you’re a Depeche Mode die-hard, or even fancy current million-dollar selling artists, like Calvin Harris or Owl City, this album will keep you pointing in the right direction... " - JamSphere
"Bowie is not only an artist but an entertainer that does not stop until he knows you have been musically satisfied. You walk away feeling uplifted with an uncontrollable urge to smile."
- Skope Magazine
“… This is one artist that brings to the table effective songwriting with an amazing yet passionate visual/vocal appeal meshed with a thought provoking yet superlative Alternative Rock sound... Reminded me of a cross between Muse and Iggy Pop.. Overall it was an emotional journey which will have the ladies wanting his full length release this Summer.”
- Rock n´ Roll view
" Francis Bowie achieves exactly what he seeks, and hopefully is able to continue his work in improving what the genre of pop is all about.. "
- Ultima Music Blog
".. Another gem is the opener "Endlessly" which bops out of the speakers like a mash up between Boy George and Prince. A groovy love song which has a sort of surprising innocence, delivered in a rich vocal reminiscent of Jack from "Nightmare Before Christmas" - a phenomenal score.. "
- Working Rythms
" From start to finish this EP from Bowie presents a very evil genius type of mystique but is very groovy and danceable. Trust me when I say this artist is somehow a bit scarier than Marilyn Manson. Let me go on record to say he's one of the more brilliant artists I've ever heard. "
" ... With a strong new wave influence coupled with modern day electronica, Francis shows some strong pop sensibility and I look forward to hearing more from this slightly eccentric songwriter..." - BL Rag
" Multitalented Dane Francis Bowie provides the perfect soundtrack for the approaching summer months.." - Piano and Synth
"..Picture Duran Duran and Unkle with dreadlocks..." - Indie Music Musings
" .. Francis Bowie is a phenomenom at the music and art scene in Denmark: A singer, song writer, painter, sculptor, designer, writer and gallery owner.
In Copenhagen 2007, he opened his first art gallery called GalArtery while also releasing the debut album “Too Much” with his indie art rock band “A LOVE YOU”.
Within the next two years, GalArtery became a place where young artists could and do their shows and performances.
After touring a lot with A LOVE YOU, Francis decides in 2010 to leave the band for a while to do solo projects. In the spring 2011 - along with two designers - he opened a second art gallery called MATT 18, which also shows fashion, clothing and design.
Francis Bowie proclaim himself as the founder of the new music genre called Intelligent Pop Music or IPM. He says that he is very astonished and disappointed by many pop musicians and producers currently because it seems like the only purpose of their music is to generate money.
Quality, art, message, love, feelings, justice, politics, poverty and power seem to be forgotten in the race for a stupid radio hit.
Francis Bowie does not think that pop music should deal with all these matters or be complex. But he does not think either that pop music shall be as ignorant as it is today. With his own words; “IPM is an attempt to put some quality, dignity and honor into pop music ” - Rising Magazine
