We’ve covered various Manchester-based rock and indie bands recently, including Twisted Wheel and Dantevilles. Granfalloon are something different. Folktronica is the perfect way to describe their simultaneously gentle and unsettling new single, The Elephant. Sung in English and German, it celebrates frontman and producer Richard Lomax’s pan-European heritage. Having previously released an ambitious 52 track solo album resulting from a song-a-week writing challenge, and played alongside We Are Scientists and Frightened Rabbit, Lomax then embraced the Granfalloon concept for a more collaborative music making experience with a collective of other musicians and producers.
The lyric video for The Elephant celebrates early RGB graphics, a nod to the upcoming album, RGB.
Granfalloon are about to set out on an extensive tour in support of the new music.
