A roadtrip to DC in August introduced me to the band Fanfarlo. They represent an eclectic brand of London Indie pop that led to them touring with Snow Patrol and playing in South by Southwest in 2009. “The Walls Are Falling Down” was the first song I ever heard by them, and I fell in love with their use of trumpet, violin, and the overall composition and pacing of the song.
I somehow forgot to download their album Reservoir (it’s only $5.99), but was reminded to after visiting the sixty one per a friend’s recommendation. The site, a crowd sourced radio that plays music that’s going to be huge in 6 months, features a bunch of the group’s music. I’m not typically a slave to the indie wave, but this one is worth surfing. Check out more of Fanfarlo’s music here.
