You Are One Of The Few Outsiders Who Really Understands Us / In The Trunk - You Are One Of The Few Outsiders Who Really Understands Us / In The Trunk
Fanfarlo
[ Galagos 008 ]


Vinyl: £3.99

Little is known about FANFARLO. Rumour has it they consist of inbred elves who inhabit a cave. The cave is located in some distant, Arctic country, although obviously not too distant for the A&R pack to travel to. They mainly feed on polar bears (FANFARLO, not the A&R pack) and leave home rarely.

When they do leave home they have been spotted playing deliciously self-confident live shows in and around London Town. Simon handles vocals and guitar, Cathy plays violin and keyboards, Justin is the bassplayer, Mark is the guitarist, Amos the drummer and Leon provides trumpet and piano. FANFARLO claim to like, among many other things, mixtapes, dancing in ridiculous ways and funny shoes.

Those funny shoes have been put to grand use in 2006 with an appearance on the excellent 'The Kids At The Club' compilation and better still the release of FANFARLO's debut 'Talking Backwards' 7" on Fortuna POP! This absolutely lovely, lilting few minutes drew heartwarming comparisons with "a scaled down, vulnerable Arcade Fire" and "Sufjan Stevens' shivering, hypnotic melody."

Now with the new year comes FANFARLO's second singular release, the beguiling double whammy - if that is the appropriate phrase - of 'Outsiders' (aka 'You Are One Of The Few Outsiders Who Really Understands Us') / 'In The Trunk'. The a-side is eloquent and tragic and extremely easy on the ear. And as is traditional with Label Fandango releases the aa-side 'In The Trunk' shows a slightly more relaxed side to the band, evoking the maudlin, maturing indie spirit of sonic stalwarts Seafood.

This here FANFARLO single follows delicately on the heels of Label Fandango releases by the likes of Air Traffic, Brinkman and Assembly Now to represent GALAGOS 008 in the general catalogue number scheme of things.
