A couple of weeks ago, Fanfarlo released the video for their brand new track, “Replicate” (BIG thanks to All Songs Considered for bringing this to my attention). I really dig this track and can’t wait to hear more. Enjoy the video below, along with a message from the band, and then head on over to fanfarlo.com for more (hint: if you sign up for the mailing list, you can download “Replicate” for free).
Almost exactly a year ago we stopped touring and sat down to write a new record. Earlier this year we went to a remote slate quarrying town in Northern Wales to record it and now we finally have the finished result in our hands.
There is so much we want to show you! It was hard to decide where to start, but we decided to start at the beginning. So here is the first song from our new album — it’s called ‘Replicate’. Over the summer there were so many visual ideas we wanted to incorporate in presenting this music to you, both on your screens and live, coming to play in your city. The first puzzle piece is the video above we made in collaboration with Alex Southam.
But that’s not all. We also have a small number of shows scheduled which we are terribly excited about. Simply cannot wait to play you all the new music. And of course, coming to the shows is the only way of hearing it.
