FRANCOBOLLO - SINGLE REVIEW

Francobollo - Steven Hawkins (Moonshiner Records) 
Francobollo - Steven Hawkins

Release Date: 31st March 2014

There are times when you shouldn't look at the ingredients of something and should just concentrate on the end product. For instance, on this new single by Swedish nutjobs Francobollo, we have a song randomly named after some guy 'Steven Hawkins' accompanied by a video that starts off as a prank and starts off as a love story between a man and a brick. That's right, a brick. That all makes sense, however, when you listen to their unhinged, jerky, twitchy indie strewn with handclaps and soft Scandinavian vocals. Then there's the processed beat layered on top and a liberal smattering of whoops. You could liken these guys to Zappa producing Grass Show while Two Door Cinema Club skin up in the next studio but what would be the point? Just listen to the music and, if you regularly lust after building materials, give the video a watch too.
