Fanfarlo Announce Details Of New Album 'Rooms Filled With Light' Out February 2012

Having earned international acclaim for their 2009 debut, "RESERVOIR," Canvasback Music/Atlantic recording group Fanfarlo have announced the upcoming release of their eagerly awaited new album. "ROOMS FILLED WITH LIGHT" is now confirmed for release on February 27th, 2012.

The album is heralded by the new track, "Deconstruction," which is out in the UK this week (17th October). The track is accompanied by the band's own 15-minute 'meditation' on the song's musical components and what happens if the song just continues, entitled "Reconstruction." NPR recently debuted "Deconstruction" as their Song Of The Day, hailing the uplifting track for "pack[ing] an awful lot of winning ingredients into a little less than five minutes. Next year is only minus-three months old, and this is already one of 2012's best songs."

Stereogum recently premiered the "Deconstruction" video, which is directed by filmmaker Alex Southam. It is now also streaming now at Fanfarlo's own newly relaunched www.fanfarlo.com. The band are set to introduce fans to more songs from "ROOMS FILLED WITH LIGHT" at their upcoming London show at Cargo on 21st November.

"ROOMS FILLED WITH LIGHT" marks a major step forward for Fanfarlo, incorporating new textures into their already eclectic sonic palette. Songs such as "Replicate" - available now for free download at www.fanfarlo.com - feature more experimental instrumentation than those found on the band's debut. The guitars are now electric instead of acoustic, while synths and samplers have emerged in place of mandolins and glockenspiels. At the same time, "ROOMS FILLED WITH LIGHT" takes all the themes, musical and lyrical, of its predecessor and vastly expands them with all the confidence of a band gaining control of their aims and abilities.

"To me the record is really about what a weird and intense experience it is to just be alive and to try to make sense of the modern world with all its bewildering pressures and possibilities," says singer/main songwriter Simon Balthazar.

"We wanted to figure out what new things were possible with the tools we were using," adds violinist/keyboardist Cathy Lucas. "This time there is more of an emphasis on patterns, repetition and hypnotic atmospheres. We were trying to achieve more light and dark, while maintaining the subtlety and elegance."

"ROOMS FILLED WITH LIGHT" was produced by Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Gnarls Barkley) and engineered by award-winning producer/engineer David Wrench (Bat For Lashes, Everything Everything, Beth Orton) at North Wales' Bryn Derwen Recording Studio.
