Fufanu — Few More Days To Go (Deluxe Edition) (Friday 8th july, 2016)

Portal icon Fufanu — Few More Days To Go (Deluxe Edition) (Friday 8th july, 2016)
↔   Fufanu now release a Deluxe Edition of their debut album ‘Few More Days To Go’, including a bonus disc with remixes from the likes of Damon Albarn, Nick Zinner and more.
↔   Fufanu follow up their ‘Adjust to the Light’ EP with their full–length debut, ‘Few More Days To Go’ is released via One Little Indian originally on 27th November.
↔   Formerly operating operating as techno/ electronic duo, Captain Fufanu, while Kaktus and Gulli were still in their teens, with the addition of live instrumentation — and the band name shortened to a more economical Fufanu (“the Captain was left behind at a rave in Cologne”) — the pair began working up a dark, metronomic take on 70s and 80s European music. If clangorous metallic guitars and floor shaking syncopated bass are key key elements in the band’s powerful circumspect post–punk, then the live show with it’s MBV–like furnace blasts of volume is a game changer: The mordant wit suggested by song titles like Plastic People and live opener Goodbye can shift up into thrillingly cold malevolence, fronted by ‘slyph–like’ singer Kaktus Einarsson’s magnetic stage presence.
↔   Few More Days To Go (Deluxe Edition) is released on a 20–track CD Album.
↔   Following their February tour, the band enjoyed a triumphant show on home turf supporting Radiohead — at their request — at this year’s Secret Solstice in Reykjavík. Querulous and impulsive, the last year has seen Fufanu as the toast of Airwaves 2015 and tour with The Vaccines, Bo Ningen, Blur and John Grant, developing an overwhelming iron fist of a live show — their recent UK tour culminated with a sold–out Sebright Arms date that found super–fan Damon Albarn squeezed in amongst the crowd. That show revealed a fast developing group, the missing link between Neu! and Berlin–era Iggy Pop.

Fufanu is:
♦♠♦   Kaktus Einarsson (vocals) 
♦♠♦   Gulli (guitar/programming)
↔   Fufanu’s critically acclaimed debut album ‘Few More Days To Go’ is released in a deluxe 2CD format containing 10 extra tracks including exclusive remixes from the likes of Damon Albarn (Blur) and Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs).
♦♠♦   Formerly operating as techno duo, Captain Fufanu, by adding more live instruments to their sound — the band name shortened to Fufanu — began working up a dark, psychedelicized take on 70s/ 80s European music inspired by Kraftwerk, early Simple Minds, Roxy Music and New Order.
♦♠♦   “There was no certain moment when we realized that this was our sound. I think we just liked what we were doing and kept experimenting. From [last year’s Roskilde Festival] onward, the idea of a new sound for us was born — although leaving techno was not the outcome we imagined. It all happened really naturally.”
♦♠♦   “The music world needs more maniacs; that much is for sure. Samuel Herring of FUTURE ISLANDS proved in 2014 that there’s a certain demand for charismatic front singers. Hrafnkell Kaktus could bet he next in line. The lead singer of Icelandic psychedelic rock outfit FUFANU unleashes its inner Ian Curtis from the moment his band members starts playing. The almost BAUHAUS–like dark wave intensity of these young fellas from the North was as lot as possible, it was desperate and angry while they also refused themselves to familiar song structures.”
