Francis: 'This Must Be Blood' and 'Lekomberg, We Were Kin' MP3s

From Dalarna in central Sweden, the band Francis is singer Petra Mases (Vocals, Piano), Jerker Henriksson (Guitars, Backing vocals), Petter Nygårdh (Drums), and Tim Grundtman (Bass, Backing vocals). With only eight months between the release of their first full length record, Lekomberg, We Were Kin, and follow-up, This Must Be Blood, the band is still working at getting noticed outside of Sweden. Although, I know you'll agree that all it will take is people hearing their intricate pop songs. 

Francis may have the tasteful and restrained musicianship of skilled players, but it's the human touch lent by Petra Mases' vocals that lights up the room. Even while toiling, as all must, in the towering shadow cast by vocal greats, Mases still casts enough throaty light to stand out. 

Highly Recommended.
