Fanfarlo – The Walls are coming down
This little slice of wonderful dropped quietly into our inbox a few days ago, there were no trumpets, no drum roll, no banjo, xylophone or anything, there were certainly no hauntingly soft inviting vocals announcing its arrival. All of this would have been asking far too much from what is essentially a collection of zero’s and one’s, or so you’d think. If you did think that you would be wrong, because the same zero’s and one’s, arranged in a different order, have given me the joy that is Fanfarlo – “The Walls are Coming Down” which, if my ears haven’t failed me, includes all of the above arranged perfectly into a beautiful pop song reminiscent of Goldrush or the Arcade Fire. I bet they’d get on really well with Okkervil River and Broadcast 2000 as well.
So, without further ado, download the track, listen to it, love it and then go out and buy Fanfarlo’s debut ‘Reservoir’ which is out on the 28th of September, then you might like to purchase a ticket for their tour of the UK
