“Francis of Delirium are finding their feet as standard bearers for the garage rock scene.” - The Line of Best Fit

“(All Change is) a lane-hopping mix of complex guitar pop, heartfelt emo, and raw emotion.” - Secret Meeting

“A duo who are creating a refreshing narrative on self-doubt.” - Earmilk 

“For all the young bands that are crafting their sound with inspirations from 90’s grunge rock, I have yet to be moved by any. That is until I played Francis of Delirium.” - Alfitude

Out today, All Change is the debut EP by the Luxembourg-based, Canadian-American duo Francis Of Delirium, a band fast on the rise. First appearing back in January with the instantaneous track “Quit Fucking Around,” Francis Of Delirium have caught attention by making a powerful sound where 90’s grunge collides with indie folk and millennial DIY; different generations of rock explained in part by 18 year-old songwriter Jana Bahrich being thirty years junior to her collaborator Chris Hewett.

A highly creative and self-contained duo, intimacy and vulnerability lies at the heart of their music, made impactful by Jana’s high energy vocals and genuine passion to connect with each member of the audience. All Change perfectly illustrates this, a five-track primer that not only delivers on their early promise but shows they’re just getting started.

To coincide with the EP’s release, the band are also releasing a video for EP track “Karen” – yes, a song about “that” Karen. With the video made in isolation by Jana, she says of the track, “Karen is the Karen seen in the memes everywhere but imagined as this narrator in your head that defines how you experience things, generally through a more negative lens. So Karen is about picturing the part of your brain that likes to sow self-doubt in the back of your mind as a stereotypical suburban mom who wants to yell at the manager but instead she’s picking on you. Imagining the narrator as something sort of funny is meant to relinquish some of its power.”

Down about not having been able to tour since the release of their debut single as the world went into lockdown, the live band (a trio where Jana is joined by a drummer and bassist) finally made their return last week at a drive-in show where the audience watched from their cars. With their second EP already in the works, they’ll hopefully be back out touring soon with shows across Europe already pencilled in for later this year. 

All Change is out now on Dalliance Recordings.
