Granfalloon release new track Lysistrata - their first single of 2019, on 14th June - which will be followed by their second long player in Autumn 2019.
Granfalloon, initially began as the Manchester based recording project of artist and producer Richard Lomax. After moving to Manchester in 2013, Lomax wrote and recorded 52 songs in 2014 (one per week) for the album Calendar - an ephemeral musical document of the year which saw him collaborate with different artists from week to week including Avital Raz, Natalie McCool, and future Granfalloon collaborator Peer Van See. After the album's release in 2015 he put together the sonic palette for Granfalloon's mixture of folk and electronica (folktronica) and recorded the debut Granfalloon album, Down There For Dancing, which was released in 2017. Lomax, who is now proudly backed by a group of musicians from the EU, makes a hybrid of lo-fi folk, experimental music, and electronica - weaving oddball elements, such as Omnichords and vintage drum machines, into dreamy cinematic soundscapes.
Their 2018 single, Broken Things, picked up tremendous support from BBC Introducing in Manchester and they have also been named Artist Of The Week for Richer Sounds and Qthemusic. This Summer they will be appearing at Bluedot Festival. In 2018, they toured the UK, Germany, Belgium, France, and Italy. Previously Lomax has played shows with We Are Scientists, Frightened Rabbit, Emma Pollock, The Burning Hell, and The Wave Pictures.
Made by Gumshoe Productions/Hippiezilla. Filmed in various locations including Sheffield, Fletcher Moss, and The Yard, one of Manchester's loveliest new creative spaces. Please feel to share the video far and wide.
