Widely acclaimed Icelandic experimental-post-punk outfit Fufanu have shared the second track taken from their forthcoming second LP ‘Sports’ – agitated, dark, brooding single ‘Bad Rockets’. The ground-breaking band have also revealed that their highly anticipated sophomore album will be released on 3rd February 2017, supported by a UK tour throughout February. Produced in Iceland by Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, ‘Bad Rockets’ along with first single ‘Sports’ sees Fufanu return with a palpable sense of urgency and a fresh spin on their dark, new-wave-esq electronic-driven post-punk. Previously, the Reykjavik-based group operated as Captain Fufanu, making obscure techno music and bewildering audiences. Although Captain Fufanu were instrumental, Kaktus had started writing lyrics during a stint in London, where he worked on Damon Albarn’s Everyday Robots album. While he was away, Gulli had been creating a new soundscape, which Kaktus says “really conveyed what I was thinking.” Fufanu was re-born – a band with a riotous and guitar-led sound that was oddly born out of electronic beginnings rather than the other way around, as is more common. Launching the band at 2014’s Iceland Airwaves, in the space of just one week Fufanu became a hotly-tipped emerging band, made their UK live debut at the capital’s JaJaJa night and supported Damon Albarn at the Albert Hall - winning the approval of Brian Eno into the bargain. The band were praised by the press, who compared them to Neu!, Joy Division and Bauhaus. 2015 saw the band sign to One Little Indian, before going on to support The Vaccines on their sold out March / April tour in the UK - also slipping in a memorable two-night stand with Bo Ningen at Hoxton Bar & Grill. In June things once again dramatically shifted up a gear when the band played to an enormous audience, supporting Blur at Hyde Park. Fufanu return to Oporto on Wednesday 15th February

High & Lonesome & Oporto present... Marty O'Reilly + special guests Sunday 5th March 2017 Oporto, Call Lane, Leeds Explaining Marty O’Reilly’s music is like describing a remembered dream. It feels familiar, but at the same time it feels new. It's blues but not blues, folk but not folk, soulful but not soul. Marty’s voice is beautiful and distinctive, his lyrics stark yet lush over gritty electrified guitar. One can also hear an urgency in the songs, expressing something elemental and perhaps contradictory: love and anger, joy and pain. From raw gospel blues to cinematic epics, from heavy driving grooves to delicately arranged folk songs. Leaving the stage out of breath, the ground littered with broken strings, it's hard to describe, impossible to categorize. Yet people who know the music will try to explain it to you, just as you might struggle to explain a dream in the morning. The visions might slip away as you recount them, but the feeling remains. Conceived in Santa Cruz California in 2012 and has been touring relentlessly ever since, from San Francisco to New Orleans to London to Seattle. They invite you to join them. "A band true to its name: soulful" - NPR "Delightful... well crafted music" - SF Weekly "Raw musical excellence... guitar, fiddle and double bass played to within an inch of their inanimate lives." - 4000 Miles to Nashville "Definitely on the top of the Americana list penned by any serious connoisseur of roots music this year." - Portland Tribune £6 adv. from Crash Records, Jumbo Records & online... www.musicglue.com/high-and-lonesome/events/5-mar-17-marty-oreilly-oporto
