FRANCOBOLLO are now making the single'sB-side 'Hot Cars' available for free:
Breaking their tradition of directing their own videos, for 'Hot Cars' FRANCOBOLLO asked their friend of the band Opera Goodwin to make it, on the condition that she'd do it without letting them see any part of it from conception to delivery.
FRANCOBOLLO, made up of Simon Nilsson, Sean Bean and Petter Grevelius, hit the shores of the UK from Sweden in 2009. Picking up Londoner Sam Bailey and more recently fellow Swede Wiya Ngeh on their journey, they've honed their raucous own brand of wonky grungy pop, slowly picking up a growing legion of dedicated pit-filling Francophiles along the way. Combining dashes of Beck, Pavement and Nirvana, they create a unique cacophony of melody infused guitar-pop with twinges of electronics picking up the energy.
FRANCOBOLLO have announced they'll be playing The Great Escape Festival and Artrocker New Blood Festival:
08/05/14 (daytime): Dr. Martens Stage @ The Great Escape Festival - Brighton, UK
08/05/14 (evening): The Bunker @ The Alternative Great Escape, Brighton, UK
13/06/14 - Artrocker New Blood Festival @ Hoxton Bar & Kitchen, London, UK
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
