Fanfarlo Head This Way In Support Of ‘Reservoir’


Fanfarlo has three key influences, in my opinion. First, the blaring trumpet and deep lead vocals on tracks like “The Walls Are Coming Down” reminisce of early Beirut (circa The Gulag Orkestar). Then, there’s the anthemic qualities in songs like “Luna”, which conjure artists such as Arcade Fire. And, finally, the theatrics of greats like The Decemberists. Still, I feel safe saying that the combination of influences is just right – it makes their music their own, and it makes an album like Reservoir really, really good.

So, the news is that Fanfarlo is headed this way and will play several shows along the West Coast next month. You can see those dates, preceded by some in the CT timezone, below the track:
