The curious case of Francobollo.

In what seems like a semi-parodying and surrealistic world of pregnancies, Swedish quartet Francobollo takes us to the different stages of rebirth in their video “Worried Times.” Taking us from prenatal yoga to actual birth, Francobollo stretches (or toys) with our imaginations by presenting a pregnant man whom we can’t trust because of the suspicious mustache. The band’s bassist, Sam Bailey, directed this offbeat video that feels so wrong yet so hilariously right. Coated with bursts of synths and swinging guitars, it’s a synth-powered rock piece ready to give birth to adrenalines inside your ears:

“The video for Worried Times continues on where ‘Good Times’ left us. It charts the movements of Laurent having won ‘An intimate performance from Francobollo’ on Swedish television’s bingo sensation show BingoLotto. Thrust into a world populated by characters from old Francobollo videos, we see what it means to have Francobollo inside of you: a new powersport, antenatal skydiving” shared the band.

The track is from their debut record Long Live Life, which will be out on July 14th.
