We haven’t heard much from Fanfarlo after their hypeworthy 2009 debut Reservoir (maybe we weren’t looking) — but now all of a sudden it’s 2012 and they’ve got a sophomore album and new, very weird friends. Here’s Yeasayer’s bizarre remix of “Shiny Things”, the lead single from the upcoming Rooms Filled With Light. Czech it:
If you haven’t seen the video yet, you might just assume that Yeasayer have really jazzed up “Shiny Things”. I mean, Fanfarlo is like the bastard spawn of Arcade Fire and Beirut? Nah, that was the old Fanfarlo (and hey, we’d never complain) — they’ve apparently reinvented themselves on LP two. So kudos to them and kudos to Yeasayer for, alas, jazzing it up. This “Shiny Things” remix is unstoppable.
Rooms Filled With Light is out Feb 28th via Canvasback.
