We’re delighted to be working with Francis of Delirium for the first time.

Born out of a bedroom, Francis of Delirium was created by 18-year-old Jana Bahrich (Vancouver, CA) who later invited drummer/producer Chris Hewett (Seattle, USA) to help her form an indie rock band. Based in Luxembourg, together they synthesise grunge and folk to deliver a powerful sound that supports Jana’s high energy vocals and her genuine passion to connect with each member of the audience; intimacy and vulnerability lie at the heart of her lyrics.

First appearing back in January with the instantaneous track Quit Fucking Around, they followed it up a few months later with the more reflective but equally potent Circles (‘An incredibly powerful catharsis, a controlled yet palpable expulsion of pain’ – The Line of Best Fit).

During this time however, world events have meant that Francis of Delirium haven’t been able to tour but determined not to be held back, their debut EP (All Change) is coming out on 19 June on Dalliance Recordings (Gia Margaret, Wilsen, Common Holly) with a firm promise to hit the road as soon as it’s deemed safe for them to do so.

Support comes from Piles of Clothes. Piles of Clothes is the musical project of Midlands-born, Leeds-based songwriter Andy Crowder. For fans of acoustic guitars, vocal harmonies and self-deprecating songwriting.
