Sharing haunting new single ‘Come Out and Play’, Luxembourg-based Canadian Francis of Delirium - aka the project of 20-year-old Jana Bahrich - is sharing their first new music since their second EP ‘Wading’.
““I kept thinking about clowns when making this song, I watched Felini’s ‘8 ½’ and the closing scene where a procession of clowns play in a band stuck with me,” Jana explains. “I had them in my mind for months, thinking about the way they hid behind painted faces, keeping so much hidden from the audience, and also just how sad they seemed. I wanted this song to feel dark and to have an eeriness that would make sense in the background of some weird art movie about funhouses and carnivals.”
