Fanfarlo fanfare


I'M A fan of Fanfarlo - I have been since coming across them back in January.
I can't get enough of their glorious, ramshackle folk sound on debut Reservoir.
Finally released through the London group's own label, following a 1,000-copy limited release earlier this year, Reservoir is brimming with stirring stomps and raucous brass crescendos.
There are obvious comparisons to be drawn here - Arcade Fire, Beirut, Sigur Ros, Snow Patrol etc.
However the only thing that Fanfarlo lack in comparison to those aforementioned acts is big label backing - so please take a minute to have a listen, and I guarantee you'll be a Fanfarlo fan too.
