Album Review: Fanfarlo - Let's Go Extinct

"Fanfarlo have always preferred taking the direct route to the listener's heart, with most of their songs coming out of the gates in full swing with simple guitar and drums combining to push the songs forward - often with some resonant piano chords adding fortitude - to a graceful and catchy chorus. This remains the same on their third album, but the advancement comes in the ways that they've adorned the songs with heavy synthesizer use and other bells and whistles (literally) to add to their depth."
