“Raw Fabrics are an L.A.-based trio of 21-year-olds with an armload of anthemic songs that mix the driving bass lines of modern dance-punk bands with production sheen of modern radio bands” – Buzzbands LA
“Raw Fabrics carry the charisma and energy of the Clash and the Sex Pistols, but somehow still reach the modern production eccentricities of Gorillaz and Muse.” –Mostly Junkfood
“[Raw Fabrics are like] If Bono had smoked a pack of Camels and joined the swaggering rock band across the street that liked to dance.” – High Voltage

When talking about the upcoming EP, singer/songwriter Jack B. Franco says “Gold Handcuffs, is meant to raise the question: how are people confined or defined by societies’ expectations and the struggle of influence.”
Gold Handcuffs was produced by Stephen Street, known for his work with Blur, The Cranberries, The Smiths, Morrissey, Kaiser Chiefs and more.
Raw Fabrics provided fans a sneak peek of the Gold Handcuffs with the release of their first single “Down The Drain” that showcases their raw and addicting melodies. The band’s growing obsession for Warhol-esque Imagery, and fondness of over the top Jungle Drums and sounds can be seen the official music video for “Down The Drain,” press below to watch.
The band originally formed in February of 2013 and includes: Jack B. Franco (Singer/Songwriter/Guitar); Player Jon Fredrik (Drums); and Justus Dixon (Bass/Background Vocals). The trio agreed on going by the name Raw Fabrics with the idea that the songs had to be good enough that if you strip all the layers, all the jungle toms, all the extra noise, that they would carry infectious melodies and truth.
