Fanfarlo – Harold T. Wilkins, Or How To Wait For A Very Long Time


It’s no surprise to learn that Fanfarlo are currently touring with mandolin led acoustic powerhouses, Mumford and Sons.

For like their partners in tweed, this Swedish folk fivesome deliver a fine pop drama complete with bleeding heart vocals and a whole delirious mess of unplugged strings and rampant percussion.

The band’s Scandinavian roots come through in keeping an order though, bringing some a coy sweetness to the affair that would never pass through the natural cynicism of a wholly British band.

Female backing tones on the lead male vocals too make sure things never take full control of the melody, keeping this ecstasy contained, but just as effective.

8.3/10

Release Date: 8 March
