fanfarlo




O vídeo é engraçado mas o que me traz a fazer o post é a música. Faz parte do primeiro álbum dos Fanfarlo, uma banda apadrinhada pelos Sigur Rós. As fotos que aparecem nas capasdo álbum e do single (a música que aparece no vídeo, Drowning Men) foram tiradas por Lilja Birgisdottir, uma fotógrafa checa, e nas quais aparece a irmã de Jónsi.

When sigur rós’s friends fanfarlo were casting around for suitable inspiration for the cover of their debut album, ‘reservoir’, jónsi - hearing of the band’s love of czech photographer jan saudek - suggested they check out his sister lilja’s photography. upon investigating lilja’s myspace, the fanfarlo boys and girls decided to use an atmospheric shot lilja had taken of two young girls in nightgowns - one of them mysteriously masked - to grace the record’s front sleeve. only later did they realise that the masked girl was in fact none other than rósa (aka sigurrós, jónsi’s youngest sister), whose birth 15 years ago gave name to, well, you know who. as you can see here it’s a great album sleeve (for a great album if we may add)."
