Having just released their first album, Reservoir, London-based Fanfarlo are making quite a splash in the indie world. The quintet is known for an extensive use of many instruments (trumpet, violin, mandolin) that gives their music a fresh, yet textbook indie pop sound. Basically if you like Arcade Fire, Fanfarlo is worth your time. Their tour hits The Bowery Ballroom in NYC on Sept. 21 and The Bell House in Brooklyn on Sept. 22. myspace.com/fanfarlo.
