Last week we covered Strangers Candy recording artist Bengtsarvet and their magnificent post-rock single ‘Slutet’ / ‘Monarken’ and now it’s time for another Strangers Candy artist: Francis. Francis is a four-piece that, like Bengtsarvet, hails from the Swedish province Dalarna, and earlier this year they released their debut record Lekomberg, We Were Kin as well as supporting The Tallest Man on Earth on his European tour.
Francis have just finished the recording of their second release; an ep called This Must Be Blood which will be released via Strangers Candy on the 27th of February and below you can give the first single from the EP a listen. The track in question is a wonderful piece of power-pop and it’s titled ‘Traktor’ (that’s “tractor” for the non-Swedish speaking). It will see its official release on January 23rd.
