London quintet Fanfarlo began gaining fans and critical praise for its genial pop in 2009 with the release of its folky debut Reservoir.
On its new follow-up album, Rooms Filled With Light, the band added synths and samplers to its sonic mix. The result: a sophomore effort gleaming with lush, playful orchestral pop that nods to The Cure and Talking Heads.
