Distorted, childlike, energetic, excitable, mischievous; quite simply Francobollo is everything you ever wanted for Christmas, but were too afraid to ask.

The Swedish off-kilter indie pop quartet 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.

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.

Long Live Life – Francobollo’s much anticipated debut album, to be released on Friday 14th July, was a test as to how to capture the band’s onstage spirit – which they’re now widely renowned for.

Plus support from ALFRESCO LOVE SOUNDS

Alfresco Love Sounds is the ongoing music project of Tom Ward – a young, multi-instrumentalist and producer from Birmingham, UK who writes and records dreamy, psychedelic pop tunes. Since the release of his critically-acclaimed debut 2015 album on New Los Angeles Records he has earned legions of fans worldwide, thanks in part to regular radio rotation from highly-influential stations like California’s KCRW.

Now that Alfresco Love Sounds has grown into a full band for the live show experience, featuring Joe Hale and his cousin Miles on drums, Tom and his outfit look poised to become a major force on the festival circuit and far beyond. Alfresco Love Sounds is music to get lost inside of, you should not miss this chance to let yourself be swept away by the tide.
