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.
