Biography

October 13

Fanfarlo return with their first new music in 18 months in the shape of new EP, The Sea, released through their own label New World Records.

Taking their name from a novella by Charles Baudelaire, Fanfarlo were formed by frontman Simon Balthazar in London (UK) in 2006. Fanfarlo's debut 'Reservoir' (2009) was released to critical acclaim. Their music originally fused indie rock and folk with a miscellany of post-punk and baroque-pop. Last year their second album 'Rooms Filled With Light' (2012) saw the band's sound evolve as they gained a taste for bigger lyrical themes and 80s synth pop.

Drawn to outside philosophers, science and lone visionaries, their new EP 'The Sea' (out Oct 2013, New World Records) refines their new direction. The third album 'Let's Go Extinct' (out in early 2014) sees Fanfarlo metamorphosise while attaining their original lure for fine musicianship and lyricism.

Alongside Simon Balthazar (guitar, vocals) Fanfarlo are Cathy Lucas (violin, keys), Leon Beckenham (trumpet, keys) and Justin Finch (bass), with longstanding drummer Amos Memon, being replaced recently by Valentina Magaletti.
