We’ve heard very little of Falun five piece Francis since the release of their EP, This Must Be Blood back in 2012 which heralded a new direction for the quintet. But news of a new album, Marathon set for international release next February, more than makes up for the absence and on the evidence of the first single from it, heralds another new direction from that work. The Swedes have unveiled, ‘Follow Me Home’, a superbly crafted piece of nostalgic pop where all elements intertwine to form a neatly woven tapestry of hope in the face of an uncertain personal and global future. Marathon is out through Strangers Candy on February 5 next year. Let the five minute wonder effortlessly glide by below.
Follow Me Home
