It starts with a car ignition and a killer harmonica hook. Suddenly, you’re bounding down the highway at a hundred miles an hour, singing at the top of your lungs—the The Murlocs‘ “Francesca”. The joie de vivre in the lyrics is enough to pull you out of the stuck-at-work-blues and into a road movie: “I can see it in your stride / Something’s changing / Something’s going right (Hoo!)”. By the end, you’ve heard so many handclaps, you feel like you’ve just rocked Wembley. Jeff Lynne would be jealous. Check it out via ATO Records .
