The new single from Granfalloon, Lysistrata, is taken from their forthcoming second album which will be released on streaming platforms and 12″ vinyl record in September 2019.
Granfalloon, initially began as the Manchester based recording project of artist and producer Richard Lomax. Lomax previously with anarchic folk collective Johnny5thWheel&thecowards who released two albums through Sotones Records (Band of Skulls, The Moulettes). 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 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 album, Down There For Dancing, which was released in 2017. Having expended into a band, Granfalloon 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 and songs.
