After making a super slinky introduction with ‘Kinky Lola,’ Sweden via London group Francobollo are back with new single ‘Good Times’, a playful yet jagged tune bursting with so much slacker charm that it’s better than getting a full house down the Gala Bingo.
Speaking of which, its new video has been directed by the band’s bassist Sam and is based around a man sitting at home playing along with the TV show ‘Bingolotto’. Apparently, it’s one of the biggest shows in Sweden and yep, it’s basically their equivalent of the Lotto. Francobollo’s Bingolotto (try saying that five times fast) has some standard prizes like furniture, a cutlery set, and clothes.
Presumably this was the portion of the video that featured footage from the nineties show, because things get a bit weird after a while. Suddenly they’re throwing gravel showers, reverse gardening, your ex-wife and concentrated dark matter at us (seems a bit dangerous).
So get your bingo dabbers at the ready and watch the video for ‘Good Times’ exclusively below. Maybe you’ll win a performance by the band themselves…
