RAC dropped part two of his Strangers series on April 1st, which is a freaking brilliant piece of work from start to finish. The album concludes with this summer-y mix of perfection and given how it’s looking outside.. I hope this is playing on your musical devices during your morning commutes.. because I legit want to see everyone dancing around NYC this morning while I’m listening to this song as well. Game on.
I discovered this band about a month ago while on some travels through East Africa. The being in East Africa has nothing to do with this story.. other than the fact i had no one around me who would appreciate such glorious tunes. TRAGEDY!!
This is truly a special band worth telling everyone you know.
It’s an amazing blend of 1) Arcade Fire’s full orchestra compositions, including trumpets, saxophones, violins and yet still maintains that addictive pop-rock that will make your soul dance and 2) Beirut’s romantic vocals and eclectic personality.
I saw these guys in concert last week at the Brighton Music Hall in Boston and left completely blown away at how these 4 talented musicians from the UK can produce such amazing sounds.
Listen. This is one of the best albums I’ve ever listened to. My Vinyl just arrived in the mail. 🙂
Fanfarlo – Finish Line(listen to the epic trumpets at the end.. goosebumps)
Fanfarlo – Harold T Wilkins or How to wait for a very long time (SO CATCHY – amazing bass line and chorus to sing a lot with!)
Fanfarlo – Good Morning Midnight (a beautiful instrumental)
Fanfarlo – Ghosts (awesome Arcade Fire-like rock out at the end!)
Fanfarlo – Luna(a song so magical.. and so loved by Lizzie all the way in Aus.. that i streamed the song live for her from the concert so she could soak it all in.. 🙂
