Fan of stirring indie bands who look beyond the regular ol’ guitar, drums and keys setup? Then it’s time to become a fan of Fanfarlo.
The London outfit, headed up by Swedish mastermind Simon Balthazar, release third album ‘Let’s Go Extinct’ this week and make the proposition of extinction an enticing one. Compiled of ten tracks that sound like they’ve been equally as influenced by the big philosophical questions as they have by Talking Heads, Fanfarlo’s latest prog-pop opus is ambitious without being ponderous, enjoyable without being throwaway. It’s one to hear, in short.
Check out my Fanfarlo review and get a taster of the album with danceable lead single ‘A Distance’ below. Cowbells out, everyone!
