Fufanu follow up their “Adjust to the Light” EP with their full-length debut, “Few More Days To Go”. The album is released via One Little Indian on 27. November 2015 on a 10-track CD Album and 12″ Vinyl with MP3 download card.
Formerly operating as techno/ electronic duo, Captain Fufanu, while Kaktus and Gulli were still in their teens, with the addition of live instrumentation – and the band name shortened to a more economical Fufanu (“the Captain was left behind at a rave in Cologne”) – the pair began working up a dark, metronomic take on 70s and 80s European music. If clangorous metallic guitars and floor shaking syncopated bass are key elements in the band’s powerful circumspect post-punk, then the live show with it’s MBV-like furnace blasts of volume is a game changer: The mordant wit suggested by song titles like “Plastic People” and live opener “Goodbye” can shift up into thrillingly cold malevolence, fronted by ‘slyph-like’ singer Kaktus Einarsson’s magnetic stage presence.
