Swedish alternative rockers, Francobollo, knows the claustrofucking sensation of being locked by something or someone in their new single “Worried Times.” Taking off with guitar chords, that stride you to percussive cascade, “Worried Times” wraps you with exhilarating layers of pouncing beats and lyrical reflections of one’s claustrophobia towards commitment of any kind. Stream below:

“The song is about claustrophobia, and the fear of being locked down, tied to, held up or forced by something or someone, and about the fine art of committing” shared the quartet.

“Worried Times” is from their upcoming debut album Long Live Life, which will be released on July 14th. Francobollo worked alongside Alt-J producer, Charlie Andrew, who decided to co-produce the record after seeing them live.
