Hey! Manchester presents Francis Of Delirium w/ Dee Rae

Please note this is an 18+ event

Francis of Delirium has announced her highly anticipated debut album ‘Lighthouse’, releasing 22nd March 2024 via Dalliance Recordings.

Francis of Delirium is the moniker of 22-year old, Luxembourg based Jana Bahrich. The
young artist’s incredible journey up until this point has seen her release 3 critically acclaimed EPs,
‘All Change’, ‘Wading’ and ‘The Funhouse’. With praise so far from the likes of Stereogum,
FADER, Pitchfork, The Line of Best Fit, 6 Music, Clash, KEXP and NPR to name but a
few, Francis of Delirium is on the precipice of something extremely exciting with debut album ‘Lighthouse’.

As Francis of Delirium has progressed over 3 EPs and two previously released album tracks
‘Real Love’ and ‘First Touch’ (both produced by Catherine Marks [boygenius, The Killers, Wolf
Alice]), the sound of the project is shifting from angst filled alt-rock, to embrace a more vulnerable
and open sonic palette, weaving in elements of pop alongside rock to create Gen-Z anthems which
celebrate the beautiful things of the world. The upcoming album is titled ‘Lighthouse’, as their
music has always straddled the line of light and darkness, both musically and lyrically. Expanding
the instrumentation by incorporating more pianos and acoustic guitars, the tracks on ‘Lighthouse’ are intimate and disarming. Speaking on the upcoming album, Jana offers:

“For this album, hope is the prevailing feeling I’m left with after making it and listening to it. The idea is that there is this light guiding you out into a space where you can be more open and accepting of love and joy. Even as you gain or lose love, it never really goes away; it just transforms itself, moving into other relationships with you.”

Local support comes from Dee Rae. Dee Rae is a four-piece indie-folk act from Manchester, taking influence from a blend of contemporary artists such as Big Thief and Snail Mail, and legendary songwriters Elliott Smith and Joni Mitchell.
