THE GREAT ESCAPE FESTIVAL + ARTROCKER NEW BLOOD SHOWS

“…they put the angular into the grungealist revival allowing their riffs to trip and stutter over the beat, it’s spiky but utterly slacker faithful…with a bit of luck in the right places, these guys should be going even more places next year [2014].” Artrocker

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. Here are the results:

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
