England’s Fanfarlo released the unexpectedly delightful Reservoir as a limited free download in early 2009. Since then, it’s stayed in fairly heavy rotation due to the swooning harmonies and lush orchestral-pop arrangements. Right now, the band is holed up recording their sophomore effort. In the meantime, they shot a video for the song “Atlas,” which it turns out is fairly popular because of its inclusion in the Twilight movies. Probably not as popular as Muse’s “Super Massive Blackhole” though.
Still, “Atlas” isn’t the best cut off of Reservoir, not by a long shot, but it is a good representation of the band‘s sound. This video is a great reminder of how much 2009 belonged to these guys and what great anticipation there is for their follow-up record.
