It’s been a couple of years since I saw British quintet Fanfarlo at the Ziegel Oh Lac at Zurich’s Rote Fabrik. After the success of their 2009 debut album Reservoir, the indie darlings have toured relentlessly, alone as well as supporting the likes of Snow Patrol and Mumford & Sons, had a song included on the Eclipse soundtrack and just generally gathered inspiration for their latest effort, Rooms Filled With Light.
I have to admit I haven’t had a chance to listen to Rooms Filled With Light yet (so much music, so little time!), but Reservoir was a pretty constant presence on my 2010 playlists. I guess my first introduction to the new album will be hearing it at Rote Fabrik on Wednesday night when the band hit town again. Needless to say, I’m quite looking forward to it. Here’s a taste of what the album has to offer:
