Band To Watch: Fanfarlo

First of all, go here to download Fanfarlo's debut album for one dollar and by the time you're done reading this you'll be able to enjoy this London-based band's catchy indie pop. Seriously though, do it, this one dollar offer ends the 4th.

Drawing comparisons to bands like Arcade Fire and Belle & Sebastian, Fanfarlo has big shoes to fill, but with the release of Reservoir the band is taking a step in the right direction; Reservoir takes the listener through a land of supple instrumentation and alluring orchestration. The thing that stands out the most about this album is just that, it's an album. Too many bands today attempt to write albums chock full of sagas and masterpieces which result in an overcrowded, incohesive album. Luckily, Fanfarlo has been able to avoid this pitfall and as a result we have Reservoir, a saga and masterpiece all it's own.

Watch out for this band to slowly grow a following...

The music is great, but the singer's enunciation is awful. It's a borderline deal killer for me, unless the lyrics are so embarrassingly bad it is a blessing to have them obscured.
