iTunes Editors’ Notes

Like some kind of indie rock puffer fish, Fanfarlo have the ability to sound bigger than they are, with the five band members toting a small army of horns, strings, keys, guitars, and drums. You hear it on the first track off their third album, "Life in the Sky": co-vocalists Simon Balthazar and Cathy Lucas trade parts as synths and shakers, horns and harmonies fill out the scenery. Such exuberance befits an album about life itself: Balthazar's lyrics here are about nothing less than evolution, extinction, and humanity. Despite the wry sentiments of songs like the title track and "We're the Future" ("We're a copy of a copy," he sings), the music is characteristically chipper. Some songs ("A Distance" and "Landlocked") sound decidedly '80s, festooned with bursting beats and squirming basslines. Let's Go Extinct is indie pop imagined as a school play about Charles Darwin.

Customer Reviews

Hitting Their Stride

If you’re so far behind the 8 ball that you’ve never heard Fanfarlo, then you’re jumping in point couldn’t be better! These songs feel like they’ve been lived-in for awhile and more natural than previous efforts. Its great to hear the band really comfortable in their own skin - the record feels effortless, beautiful, poignant and I hope this one goes down in history before we actually DO go extinct. Great work!

Great songs

I love all there albums. I hope they stick around for a long while. You guys are my favorite band. Can't wait to see you guys in concert in Feb!!!!

Next Chapter

Excellent new chapter to add to the great previous records Fanfarlo has released. It's a well balanced, and has something for everyone. Cheers!
