Granfalloon will release Objects of Love - their first single of 2019 in June - which will be followed by their second long player in Autumn 2019.
Influenced by the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Jarvis Cocker and Eels, the three piece Granfalloon initially began as the Manchester based folktronica recording project of Richard Lomax, and the debut album, Down There For Dancing, 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. 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.
"A lovely mass of chiming chords, deadpan wordplay and a wispy psychedelic otherness." - Now Then Magazine
"Impressive debut" - The Big Issue
"...a delicately poised sliver of indie that exists between the darkest of hours and the breaking of the dawn. Lomax’s rich, deep vocal croons over a melody that I would gladly be awoken by every day while a beat stutters in the background. Lomax is one of those artists that will persistently and consistently produce music of excellent quality without compromising for the benefit of mass appeal. This is art (without wanting to sound pretentious) and art sounds good in 2017." - Listen With Monger
"Music that wouldn't sound out of place in a Wes Anderson film" - Drunken Werewolf
