"There’s a playfulness at work in their jagged guitar lines, a free style that hides the purpose defining every move. This is pop pure and simple". DIY
"A slice of guitar pop excellence that can't help but look on the sunny side". Clash
"A glorious grunge pop art noise". MTV
"We think this is fantastic Lauren Lavern". 6 Music
Distorted and mischievous, Francobollo are a childlike celebration of everything you find fun in life. Produced by Mercury and Brit award winning producer Charlie Andrew, Long Live Life is a debut album that finds joy in sadness, a kid running around amongst the bins waving a stick.
A live show honed at North London warehouse parties led to support tours with The Big Moon and Marika Hackman, now a busy festival summer beckons before a headline tour of Europe this autumn. Capturing their raucous energy, the album sessions were recorded as guerilla gigs in Andrew’s Brixton studio. Singles Good Times, Kinky Lola & Worried Times all championed by Lauren Laverne and Tom Ravenscroft at BBC 6Music.
An innocent and excitable celebration of all existence summoning the spirit of Weezer, Pavement & Grandaddy, Francobollo are the riot you can take home to meet your Mum.
