Listen: Francobollo return with new track ‘Hoo Ha’

It’s their first new material since their debut album ‘Long Live Life’.

Last year Francobollo released their debut album ‘Long Live Life’, a collection which we said “is a collection of rough and ready tracks with infectious melodies at their core”.

Now the London based band are back with a brand new track! ‘Hoo Ha’ has been produced by Charlie Andrew (who’s also worked with alt-J and MONEY) and is a stellar return from the group. It’s a slightly warped jam that’s the perfect reintroduction to their vibrant take on alt-rock.

Speaking of the new track, frontman Simon said: “Hoo Ha is a song that came out of a jam. It sounded like a riff that Hoo Ha’s (one of our favourite bands, and dear friends of ours) would play. We named it “Hoo Ha” straight away. When it came to write lyrics, I thought: What does Hoo Ha mean to me? Immediately I thought of the Houses of Parliament, and the way British politics are. And here it is”.

Francobollo are set to play a DIY’s British Music Embassy showcase at SXSW on Monday 12th March, where they’ll be joined by LIFE, Our Girl, Catholic Action, Boniface and Breakfast Muff.
