New single from Francobollo is a blistering indie offering.
Perfectly crafted, finely tuned and expertly delivered, the new single from indie-alt band Francobollo is one of the finest slices of guitar-led music that 2016 has offered us so far.
Entitled Wonderful, presumably because the band knew its power when they first demoed it, the single is a strong combination of tight rhythms with loose melodies that is as indebted to the precise indie guitarwork of Johnny Marr as it is to the loose haziness of Mac Demarco. The end result is a track that seems to flick effortlessly between brutally intense and tenderly gentle, going from vocals delivered with a snarl to what essentially feels like indie waltz music. Consistency is subtle and, ultimately, not necessary.
This is a track you have to hear to comprehend, and simply need to hear in general.
