Quite simply Francobollo is everything you ever wanted for Christmas, but were too afraid to ask. The members, who met at school in Lund, Sweden, 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 and sweating hard to make the audience feel onstage with them. Their head turning, eyebrow raising, jawdropping, pant shitting shows earned them festival appearances including the main stage at In The Woods Festival as well as Beat Herder, Bestival and Isle of Wight and selling out their own headline dates most recently at the Sebright Arms. Sonically they sound like Weezer, Pavement and Grandaddy in a car crash.
