FanFarlo 'Talking Backwards'

£1.50

For Fans Of: The Arcade Fire, Belle and Sebastian, Sufjan Stevens.

Following prestigious support slots for Guillemots, Semifinalists and Love Is All. Now sees the first fruits of Fanfarlo's recording endeavours with the release of the single 'Talking Backwards', to be followed by an album early next year.

A soaring orchestral pop song possessed of the same driving intensity as The Arcade Fire, ‘Talking Backwards' showcases Simon's pure, crystalline voice and his gift for imaginative instrumentation. Other influences include Sufjan Stevens, Pavement, Neutral Milk Hotel and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! while Simon's charisma and boyish good looks are sure to lead to comparisons with that other talented Swede Jens Lekman.

The dark but playful B-side 'Tuesday...' is also worthy of attention, especially for its recorder solo and unique jazzy coda. A further string to Simon's bow are his intricate pen drawings which feature on the single’s artwork. With a management deal in their pocket, a bevy of A&R men beating a path to their door on a daily basis, plus talent and songs to burn, Fanfarlo are destined for great things. This is fall in love, take no prisoners pop at its very best.
