– “Sweden via London group bring a playful edge to theatrical pop” – DIY
– “Wonderfully off kilter Swedish indie pop”– CLASH MAGAZINE
– “Francobollo create jubilation…successfully fusing weird and wonderful together.” THE LINE OF BEST FIT
– “Sporting the slacker sentiments of Mac DeMarco and the untameable riffs of Pavement…Francobollo’s charm is their ability to scuff over the details and initiate you into their irresistible movement of not giving a shit” – LONDON IN STEREO
Today sees rising Swedish 4 piece, Francobollo – share their superb new single ‘Finally’.
With their origins in Lund, Sweden, and now based in London, the new single is another hugely impressive statement of intent, partnering delicate electronic flourishes with ferocious instrumental runs – creating an intriguing 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.
Seamlessly switching from mellow, beautifully constructed melodic instrumentals – into wild, explosive moments of raucous brilliance – Francobollo’s music is timeless, exhilarating, and instantly enjoyable.
“’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.”
Distorted, childlike, energetic, excitable, mischievous; quite simply Francobollo is everything you ever wanted for Christmas, but were too afraid to ask. The 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 are equally at home in intimate holes as they are on big festival stages; always oozing with joy; winning over audiences with ease.
Having already seen really encouraging support from the likes of DIY Magazine, CLASH Magazine, London In Stereo, The Line Of Best Fit, Ja Ja Ja and more online, as well as receiving strong airplay from Radio X, 6 Music, Beats 1 and more – the band look set to make a real impact over the next 12 months.
Mercury Prize and Brit Award winning producer Charlie Andrew took great 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.
