Watch the ‘Ghosts’ video here:

Despite having only formed a year ago, Berkshire based quintet Francesqa have wasted little time in carving out a name for themselves. Having played “everywhere and anywhere people would have them”, the band has already notched up shows alongside the likes of The Automatic, Canterbury, Futures and Deaf Havana.

With a couple of well received demos under their belts and an impressive live show on the build, the five-piece headed to Devon to record ‘We Lived’ with producer Peter Miles (The King Blues, Canterbury, Futures). The result, a 5-track affair, is bursting at the seams with soaring vocals hooks and summery guitar lines, coupled with a solid rhythm section that keep proceedings punchy.

Support for the band has come from all angles, but perhaps most unexpectedly from Blink 182 and Angels and Airwaves frontman, Tom Delonge. Delonge picked the band out from thousands of entries to open the Slam Dunk Festivals last month.

The band released ‘Ghosts’ as a single on June 14th, with the ‘We Lived’ EP set to follow on July 19th.
