Francobollo, the four piece from Sweden, have shared their new single ‘Finally’. With their origins in Lund, Sweden, and now based in London, the new single is a statement of intent, partnering delicate electronic flourishes with ferocious instrumental runs – creating a hybrid of schizophrenic guitar-pop.
Produced by Charlie Andrew (Alt-J, Marika Hackman, Benjamin Francis Leftwich etc.) the new Wonderful EP – from which this new track has been lifted will be the first full release on Charlie’s new label Square Leg Records.
”Finally” is simply about seeing a light in the end of a dark tunnel. the band explain – “Or – it’s about finally finding a way out.
Francobollo’s members, who met at school in Lund, Sweden, have played and recorded as session musicians for bands such as Slow Club, LA Salami and members of Mystery Jets. Cutting their teeth in North London warehouse parties, the band seem equally at home in intimate holes as they are on big festival stages.
Mercury Prize and Brit Award winning producer Charlie Andrew took interest in the band after seeing them play live, making them the first signing to his newly established label Square Leg Records. Currently producing their debut album, the record itself was a test as to how to capture the band’s onstage spirit – which they’re now quite renowned for. This resulted in an unorthodox approach to recording the majority of the album – in front of an audience, with an aim to inject the Francobollo personality into the recordings.
The ‘Wonderful’ EP is set for release November 18th, via Square Leg Records. Francobollo’s debut album is penned for a 2017 release.
