For February our Discovery of the Month goes to London trio BANFI.
After a long absence since their debut single ‘Where We Part’ was a great success, which received a lot of good praise throughout the indie music scene, and was featured on our Ultimate Indie and Alternative Playlist.
Joe Banfi, Aaron Graham and Chris McCuaig’s cool and calm approach has worked effectively, hitting back with two singles over the last four months ‘Happy When You Go’ and their latest, ‘Rosedale House’ has got the critics craving for some more tunes and a debut album hopefully.
Lead singer, Joe talks about the track: “I first moved to London with my partner in 2013. We moved into an ex-council flat there called Rosedale House.
“Our time in that whole area felt so intimate and inward between us, especially for the first year because we didn’t know anyone.
“That was really special to me, I wanted to write something about that time and place for a while so when the guitar riff came along I attached the memories to it and the song went!”
it has definitely been well worth the wait.
