In attempting to summarise Fufanu’s output to date, the music press have compared the group to numerous 1980’s innovators such as Joy Division, The Fall and Bauhaus. Whilst their lugubrious yet expansive tone can invoke the spirit of such bands, these are all groups that come not from just another generation to Fufanu but another lifetime. These are bands that existed and flourished long before the group were even born. In fact, lead vocalist Kaktus Einarsson had to look up who Ian Curtis was once the comparisons started rolling in. Fufanu are not a group obsessed with the past glories of seminal post-punk bands - their foundations are far more firmly rooted in their own sonic experimentations and developments. ‘Bad Rockets’ along with first single ‘Sports’ sees Fufanu return with a palpable sense of urgency and a fresh spin on their dark, new-wave-esq electronic-driven post-punk. Their sophomore album, ‘Sports’, produced by Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, will be released 3rd February 2017.
