What They Say About My Music

“Francie (real name Francesca Raffagnino) is a unique and refreshing talent – this is a fact that comes across immediately on new single ‘Losers Gonna Be Winners’. Eccentric and free like a Bjork or Kate Bush but with a more direct, punk energy like PJ Harvey or Anna Calvi, Francie has a vibe that screams originality and someone not satisfied with just churning out tunes. No, Francie wants to do something new, something stunning and she’s well on her way with this track.” – Listen with Monger [https://listenwithmonger.blogspot.com/2019/01/francie-single-review.html]

“Her music could be described as a mixture of indie, alternative pop and acoustic sounds; mesmerizing atmospheres in slow-tempo tracks…Dream-Pop meets Indie-Pop. Lana Del Rey meets Bats For Lashes. Her first EP “The Waste Land” was released in July 2017, and it is a gem. As I listen to the songs, I realize they sound familiar to me. They have a warm feeling. It is as if I have been listening to them my entire life. They make me sad, yet comfortable. They haunt me – absorb me, but they also make me happy.” – Fangtasia Music [https://www.music.fangtasia.de/en/blog/francie-mesmerizing-atmospheres]

“La cantautrice senese Francesca Raffagnino all’esordio discografico con un ep di quattro brani. Un dream pop malinconico con basi glitch e un’anima acustica cantautorale di stampo brit sono i principali ingredienti di un sound dalle tonalità spesso epiche. Tre brani sono cantati in inglese ma il momento più efficace è nella conclusiva “Falene” nella nostra lingua. Interessante.” – Antonio Bacciocchi [https://www.radiocoop.it/francie-the-waste-land/]

“Francie reminds me of a modern Joni Mitchell with elements of artists Birdy, Dodie, and Bon Iver mixed in, all culminating into heartfelt, gorgeous and meaningful art.” – Indie Witches [https://www.indiewitches.net/blog/francie-your-way]

“I met Francie the good old-fashioned way: on the internet. Her single “Your Way” captivated me, not only with the music but the image for the cover. After interviewing her, I like her even more. She’s brilliant, introspective and I can feel the creativity pouring out of her words.” – Mella Music [https://mellamusic.com/interview-singer-songwriter-francie/]

Francie – Losers Gonna Be Winners – Lyrics

You think that I’m

so boring because I’m good

It’s gonna be a show

that you have never seen before

 

I used to think

I was not enough

I was falling to pieces

 

That was before

that I started letting go

 

So don’t say

I won’t slay

Cause nothing you’re gonna do

nothing you’re gonna say

will stop me

will block me

I know what I wanna do now

I know where I wanna go

 

‘Cause baby I

envy those who get what they want

It’s like a fight for survive

If I fail I’m not out

I’m gonna make it too

 

Beauty may count

but intelligence matters

 

Here there’s a world

You have so many things to know

 

So come pray

to stay

and nothing you’re gonna do

nothing you’re gonna say

will stop me

will block me

I know what I wanna do now

I know where I wanna go

 

When they tell you “you are a loser” don’t ever give up

It’s gonna make you stronger

You lose if you don’t try

Your life, your dreams, your future don’t hear what they say

Cause losers gonna be winners

It’s just a matter of time

Francie Releases New Single “Your Way”

Francie is Francesca Raffagnino, a singer-songwriter from Italy. 

On July 7 2017 her debut and self-produced EP of four original songs, “The Waste Land”, was released. Her indie pop alternative music is strongly characterized by atmospheres with epic and dreamlike tones, a mix of acoustic and electronic sounds and a use of the voice that ranges from lightness to a heavier rock attitude. 

On November 30 2018 Francie releases her new single “Your Way”, which is available now in all digital stores. The song was written by her and will be included on Francie’s second musical project due in 2019, which will abandon the noir scenographies and moods of the first album and will portray the golden and bright tones of myths and dreams.

Esce “Your Way”, il nuovo singolo della cantautrice Francie

Atmosfere dalle tonalità epiche e oniriche e un mix di suoni acustici ed elettronici caratterizzano fortemente i brani indie pop alternative di Franciepseudonimo d’arte della giovane cantautrice senese Francesca Raffagnino

Nel 2017 ha esordito con un EP autoprodotto, “The Waste Land”, che affronta le tematiche dell’alienazione dell’uomo moderno e dell’inquinamento dell’ambiente naturale declinandole in quattro momenti diversi o tracce, di cui ha scritto sia la musica che i testi in lingua inglese ed italiana.  

Le armonie delicate e sognanti, prodotte dall’arpeggio di chitarra acustica che si amalgama con lo strumento-voce a tratti leggero e incisivo, tornano in questo nuovo singolo, “Your Way”, disponibile dal 30 novembre in tutti gli stores digitali. Il brano preannuncia l’uscita del secondo progetto di Francie, in cui la ricerca di un proprio posto nel mondo abbandona le tinte noir di “The Waste Land” per abbracciare quelle dorate e luminose dei sogni e dei miti.

YOUR WAY - COVER ART

Francie – Your Way – Lyrics

How can I try to go on?

How can I be like before?

One day

you came

it was like thunder

shaking my world, my detachment

I’m gonna watch from afar

painting a picture of your gaze

 

that make it make it wonderful

make it make it wonderful your way

 

How can I hold back my tears?

How can I fight what I feel?

O fate

We met here like two crossroads

then moving away from each other

I’m gonna try to forget

all of your shit and emotions

 

that make it make it wonderful

make it make it wonderful your way

Your way

 

I never told you the way I feel now

Something has frozen in my veins

And if you catch me I might run away

Yeah it hurts, but it’s fair

 

All of the mess that you left behind

is here in my soul cutting like a knife

You seem very well, I’m not quite as well

If only we could have more time to spend
