London-based indie darlings Fanfarlo have made international waves with their virtuosic brand of eclectic indie pop. Boasting a talented roster of multi-instrumentalists, the band is known for their constant reshuffling on stage, as members move between an ever-growing arsenal of instruments that includes clarinet, violin, and even musical saw. The prodigious talent of the players is matched only by the charisma and showmanship of frontman Simon Balthazar, making for an unforgettable live experience that the band will reprise on their 2014 North American tour.
Formed in 2006 by Swedish musician Simon Balthazar, Fanfarlo got their start playing small London clubs, releasing several early 7" singles to critical acclaim. The band made their studio debut in 2009 with Reservoir, receiving an invaluable popularity boost when the song "Ghost" from the album was featured on season 6 of Grey's Anatomy. Following several high profile talk show and late night performances, the band released 2012 sophomore album Rooms Filled with Light to another round of praise, kicking off their first US tour. In 2014, the band made its most ambitious effort to date with Let's Go Extinct, supporting the album's release with another highly anticipated North American tour.
FANS WHO BOUGHT TICKETS SAY:
"Absolutely fantastic band. Played half new songs from their yet-to-be-released album and really blew the audience away. Outstanding stage presence, and all the members are multi- talented."
"What a talented group — they constantly switched up instruments from violin to trumpet to sax! Definitely see them if you ever get the chance!"
"It was a pleasure to see such synergy between band members, especially for 'The Walls Are Coming Down,' 'Pilot,' and 'Drowning Men.' I wish they could have played every song twice."
