Fufanu: New single ‘Ballerina In The Rain’ Out Today

11 Mar 2016

Fufanu’s brand new single ‘Ballerina in the Rain’ is out today, and is accompanied by an incredible Damon Albarn remix! Listen to it here.

‘Do you want to move closer to the band..?’ offers singer Kaktus Einarsson to the hesitant crowd. ‘…or do we have to move the equipment closer to you?’ It’s fair to say Fufanu are not your shy retiring types. Quite the opposite: where so much new pop music in 2016 aims to please, anxious not to be the odd man out, Fufanu are querulous and impulsive, concerned only with pleasing themselves. And their confidence is only growing: The last 10 months have seen them tour with The Vaccines, Bo Ningen, Blur and John Grant, developing an overwhelming iron fist of a live show, most recently demonstrated with a second round of pulverising Airwaves shows. (‘At Airwaves ‘14, Fufanu were an encouraging prospect — tonight, they were something much more enervating: a jackhammer-rock quartet of guitar, drums, electronics and the half-sung, rebel bark of Hrafnkell Kaktus Einarsson. He comes by his hectoring naturally - he is the son of Sugarcubes singer and Iceland punk icon Einar Örn. There is also a lot of young-Iggy promise in Kaktus’ vocal charge and dancing spasms.’ Rolling Stone).

Just before Christmas the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Nick Zinner flew into Reykjavík for an intensive studio session with the band from which emerged a re-tooled version of Ballerina in the Rain, complete with backing vocals from Icelandic wonder dj. flugvél og geimskip and an accompanying remix from super-fan, Damon Albarn. The President Bongo (recently ex- of Gus Gus) remix of Northern Gannett completes the package – evoking nothing less than the sound of Sheffield, 1980. It will be released as a single on 11th March (the original versions of Ballerina in the Rain and Northern Gannett can be found on their Few More Days to Go debut album, out now).
