About this item

The follow-up to Fanfarlo's 2009 critically acclaimed debut album ‘Reservoir’ was recorded by Ben H Allen (Deerhunter, Animal Collective) during a six week session at Bryn Derwen, a studio located in a remote former slate quarry in Wales.

"Rooms Filled With Light was a phrase I found in an old notebook" says Fanfarlo's singer and songwriter Simon Balthazar, "To me it summed something up, creation, not creation of the world, but what we do as people. It seems like creating rooms and filling them with light is a very modern, fundamental human activity, creating little worlds. It resonates with the whole experience of making art or music."


Andy says: Slightly more synthy and a little more refined, Fanfarlo replace the home-made brassiness of their debut with a sleeker vibe. But their gift for surprising, arty, mighty pop is still handsomely intact. Clever and lovely too.
