Since first emerging in early-2020 with the anthemic ‘Quit Fucking Around’ and releasing a critically acclaimed 3-part EP trilogy between 2020 and 2022, Francis of Delirium aka Jana Bahrich and collaborator Chris Hewett, have gained praise for distilling the angst and despair that plagues a generation who faces an uncertain present and future. 

Francis of Delirium was shortlisted for 2022’s highly prestigious ESNS Music Moves Europe Award, as well as gaining accolades from the world’s music press and supporting some of the biggest artists on the planet, at still only 21 years old. A restless energy and desire to connect with the listener lies at the core of the project, with Jana’s personal lyrics being underpinned by a fierce rock sound that is as liberating as it is intense. 

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 support dates with Soccer Mommy, Horsegirl & Briston Maroney as well as support shows with Kings of Leon and The 1975 in Luxembourg City. Her music has traveled far beyond its place of origin and has seen praise from Pitchfork, Stereogum, FADER, Paste, The Line of Best Fit, Clash, 6Music, Radio 1, KEXP and NPR, to name but a few.

New single ‘Real Love’, produced by Catherine Marks (Wolf Alice, boygenius), is released on 20th July 2023.
