Acclaimed UK five-piece Fanfarlo have just released a new song and video for â€œReplicate,â€ from their forthcoming album. The track is currently available for free download on their newly re-launched website, www.fanfarlo.com. The songâ€™s companion video, directed by Alex Southam, is also available exclusively on their site. â€œReplicateâ€ will appear on the bandâ€™s as-yet-untitled forthcoming album, which was produced by Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Gnarls Barkley) and is expected to be released in early 2012.
In addition, Fanfarlo has announced a London show, a handful of US tour dates, as well as shows in Spain. The North American dates kick off at Boston, MAâ€™s Brighton Music Hall on October 25th and stops in New York City, Washington, DC, Brooklyn, and Philadelphia. See below for full dates.
Recently, Paste Magazine sat down with lead singer/guitarist Simon Balthazar for a first look at the bandâ€™s new album. â€œI think our first record was quite folky, and we sort of went poppy for this record,â€ Balthazar told Paste. â€œThere are influences from the late 70s, early 80s, punk and post-punk. A lot of that experimental stuff.â€
London-based Fanfarloâ€™s debut album, â€œRESERVOIR,â€ was released in October 2009 on Canvasback Music/Atlantic. The album received critical acclaim from fans and tastemakers alike, including The New York Times, SPIN, The New Yorker, Stereogum, and NPR, whoâ€™s Robin Hilton named Fanfarlo â€œThe Best New Band of â€™09.â€
