Francis of Delirium
With three EPs (‘All Change’, ‘Wading’ & ‘The Funhouse’), Luxembourg-based 20 year-old Jana Bahrich’s Francis of Delirium have quickly caught attention, finding champions in the likes of Pitchfork, Stereogum, The FADER, Paste, DIY, The Line of Best Fit, Clash, 6Music, Radio 1, KEXP, NPR and more. She was recently shortlisted for 2022’s highly prestigious ESNS Music Moves Europe Award.
A restless energy and desire to connect with the listener lies at the core of Francis of Delirium, with Jana’s personal lyrics being underpinned by an undeniable rock sound that is as liberating as it is intense. Hailed as a Gen Zer excitingly redrawing 90s classic indie rock, a deep admiration for contemporary acts such as Car Seat Headrest, Japanese Breakfast, Mitski, Phoebe Bridgers and Sufjan Stevens is also abundantly clear.
Having returned from North America after playing 26 support dates with The Districts at the start of 2022 – plus a debut headline show in New York and festival slots at both Shaky Knees and Treefort – Jana arrived back to the UK/EU for a run of UK/EU support dates with Soccer Mommy, Horsegirl & Briston Maroney as well as a support show with Kings of Leon in Luxembourg City. This autumn Francis of Delirium play Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg and Iceland Airwaves in Reykjavik before returning to the UK in early 2023 for a headline tour.
