The second Fanfarlo album, released in 2012. Produced by Ben Allen and recorded at Bryn Derwen by David Wrench.
“The second album from Fanfarlo sees them using the complex structures and sounds borrowed from Steve Reich and the weirder end of Scott Walker to augment their sparkly guitar jangle as they explore the bigger lyrical themes (science, philosophy, apocalypse) where most fear to tread. ... Best is ‘Tunguska’, where a velveteen swing guides home a song about a meteorite exploding over Siberia. Large Hadron pop that’ll frazzle yer neurons.” NME
“Balthazar’s dark humour only reveals itself to those willing to look sideways to find it.... like all the best love affairs it endures, and reveals new sides of itself with each listen.” 8/10 Drowned In Sound
Directed by Alex Southam.
