FUFANU+ FEET + VEDA + MYLES MANLEY
Widely acclaimed Icelandic experimental-post-punk outfit Fufanu have shared the second track taken from their forthcoming second LP Sports â€“ agitated, dark, brooding single â€˜Bad Rocketsâ€™. 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, â€˜Bad Rocketsâ€™ along with first single â€˜Sportsâ€™ sees Fufanu return with a palpable sense of urgency and a fresh spin on their dark, new-wave-esq electronic-driven post-punk.
Launching the band at 2014â€™s Iceland Airwaves, in the space of just one week Fufanu became a hotly-tipped emerging band, made their UK live debut at the capitalâ€™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.
