Dragons were an English rock band, formed in 2005 in Bristol by singer Anthony Tombling Jr. and drummer David Francolini.

Although originally a studio project recorded by Tombling Jr. and Francolini in Francolini's own studio "Ohm Recordings", the duo toured the album with several other musicians including fellow Dark Star and Levitation members Christian Hayes and Laurence O'Keefe, with original Levitation bassist Joe Allen stepping in to fill in for O'Keefe.

After initial live dates with Francolini's former band mates, the line-up of Adam Coombs (synthesizer), Calvin Talbot (guitar), Will Crewdson (guitar) and Jim Fage (bass) was settled. Their brand of sweeping indie rock is compared to the sound of bands such as Joy Division and Editors.[1] Their debut album, Here are the Roses, was released in June 2007.[2] A follow up album was recorded with the full band line-up, but remains unmixed and unreleased.
