Single Review: Fanfarlo – Harold T Wilkins, Or How To Wait For A Very Long Time (Warner/Atlantic)

By | Published on Thursday 25 February 2010


It’s no surprise to learn that Fanfarlo are currently touring with mandolin-led acoustic powerhouses Mumford & Sons. 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 do come through though, lending a coy sweetness to the affair that would never pass through the natural cynicism of a wholly British band. TM
