Francobollo / Exclusive Sheffield Headline | Record Junkee | Tuesday, 29. January 2019

Francobollo - Francobollo’s debut album, Long Live Life, was out in July 2017 via Square Leg Records and was produced by Charlie Andrew, who has also worked with Marika Hackman and Alt-J, among others. Just like its celebratory and optimistic title, the album is fairly brilliant, delivering a whimsical sonic pallet and a bright sense of humour. You may think that the Lund-via-London-and-back-again quartet is messy, and indeed they are, but it’s a meaningful musical messiness, from production to performance: listen to how “Good Times” begins with layers of fuzz guitars and drum fills before suddenly a lo-fi melody comes along and deconstructs everything. What initially seems chaotic finds purpose, leading listeners into the bittersweet heart and impish humour at the core of the special guests tba. Tuesday 29th JanuaryRecord Junkee£9 adv | 14+ | 0114 275 9035 7 Earl St, The Moor, Sheffield, S1 4PY
