Named after a Baudelaire novella, Fanfarlo have previously released 5 singles on some of the UK’s most credible single labels, including Moshi Moshi, Fortuna Pop & White Heat. Centered around writer and vocalist Simon Balthazar (vocals, guitar, keys, mandolin, sax, glock), who grew up in suburban Gothenburg, the group is completed with Cathy Lucas (violin, keyboard, vox), Justin Finch (bass), Amos Memon (drums) & Leon Beckenham (trumpet / keyboard), and they're currently based in London.

Fanfarlo release their 11-track debut album "Reservoir" in September 2009,produced and recorded by Peter Katis (The National, Interpol) at his home studio in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Initially made available as a download for $1 earlier in the year via the band's website, and a very limited & lavishly packaged CD box exclusively through the Rough Trade shops in the UK, where it sold in less than a week, 'Reservoir' will now receive a traditional release.
