Fufanu – Adjust To The Light
Fufanu follow up their Circus Life debut with an EP of brand new material. ‘Adjust to the Light’ was released via One Little Indian on June 29th 2015 on CD and vinyl.
Molten opener ‘Will We Last’ – full of clangorous, metallic guitars and syncopated bass – is at once uplifting and loaded with non-specific dread (“I’ve been deaf in the mornings/ Since a late night in June”, it begins). It prefaces three more tracks of circumspect post-punk and glassy existential contemplation. This mood is pulled into softer focus by the delicate synth lines on The Hours, before the stark isolation of City Lights draws a curtain over proceedings. By comparison, it is perhaps the attitude of playfulness on Blinking that most straightforwardly reflects the wit, boldness and confidence of the band right now.
In the space of one week in November 2014, Fufanu became the most talked about new band of Iceland Airwaves, made their UK live debut at JaJaJa Festival and supported Damon Albarn at the Albert Hall – winning the approval of Brian Eno no less. January 2015 saw the band perform crushing sets at Eurosonic before a return to the UK, supporting The Vaccines on their sold-out nationwide tour, and also squeezing in a memorable two-night stand with Bo Ningen at Hoxton Bar & Grill.
