Upon its release in April 2009, Reservoir, the debut album from London indie-folk troupe Fanfarlo, caused a small sensation among like-minded peers; its phantasmagoric collation of haunting folk tales, whirlwind neo-classical instrumentation, and brain-ingraining melodies, led to rightly deserved critical lauding.

Almost three years, and countless shows, down the line and with their sophomore effort Rooms Filled with Light just round the corner (February to be precise), The 405 caught up with Fanfarlo frontman Simon Balthazar ahead of a show at Cargo to chat about everything from the new record to filmmaking dreams gone awry.
