“Iceland’s most exciting young band”

“Fufanu shine a light into the bleak, mid-winter darkness.”

“Their boldness and vast reserves of potential are what make them by far and away our favourite Icelandic act.”

“Like the land of fire and ice from which Fufanu came, theirs is a melting pot of disparate flavors, bits of crunchy post-punk blended with cold techno and chewy synthpop.”
Consequence of Sound

“An intriguing swirl of glaze and propulsion – metallic-paisley guitars, Neu!-like drumming and sharp, chanting vocals, all soaked in painterly electronics.”
Rolling Stone


Named ‘Iceland’s most exciting young band’ by Pitchfork after the release of their celebrated sophomore LP Sports last year, enigmatic trio Fufanu are releasing a series of EPs throughout 2018 – each one an exercise in exploring their multiple sonic personalities, from motorik and post-punk to alt-techno, to woozy avant-garde electronica. The second instalment in The Dialogue Series – Dialogue II will be released on One Little Indian Records on 24th August, culminating in a full album to be released on 12th October; The Dialogue Series.

Lead single taken from the second EP in the trilogy, Typical Critical, explores the concept of online love vs real life love. “How we not only want to be loved and adored, but we want to feel it as well” says lyricist Kaktus Einarsson. “You want something more than to see it only through social media likes and emoji’s that someone loves you – you want to actually feel it. Feel a more complex love from what the world feeds on. Handmade love vs. mass-produced love.”

The accompanying video features a YouTube juggler, which Kaktus tracked down after stumbling upon his performance videos: “I stumbled up on this guy on YouTube doing juggle tricks in a studio with a tripod camera. He was so mesmerizing doing the tricks; I just wanted to capture him as a person—this focused and serious, but careless and lonely person. I managed to contact him but he said he had retired. I somehow managed to convince him to take part, so we went to a studio and asked him to do a routine and filmed him—so amazing.”
