The pace Fufanu had been working at was pretty fast; Sports capped off a year and a half in which they’d also released an EP and their debut, Few More Days To Go. And though constant touring can sometimes slow a band’s writing down, Fufanu found that the inspiration kept coming. While on the road, they wrote enough material to compile three new EPs: Dialogue I, Dialogue II, and Dialogue III. The first is out next month, with the others to follow through the rest of 2018.
Each EP was designed to explore “multiple sonic personalities,” an outgrowth of the band’s restless experimentation and their dismissal of easy categorization. To help produce their new material, they flew Harlem DJ/MC Alap Momin over to Iceland. “It is a dialogue between musicians with different backgrounds, different approaches, and different lifestyles,” frontman Kaktus Einarsson said of the project.
Along with the announcement, Fufanu have shared the first single from Dialogue I. It’s called “Hourglass,” and it finds the band in a more meditative space than we might be used to hearing them in, considering it’s an attempt to process grief. Listen HERE.
