About The Dialogue Series:
Once we returned to Iceland after a long stint touring, we had a bag of demoes written at different junctures on the road, purposefully created with no regard for a unified sound. Each EP is an exercise in exploring our multiple sonic personalities, from motorik and post-punk to alt-techno, to woozy avant-garde electronica.

We were eager to release the tracks into the world as and when they were written, looking to capture the sense of urgency with which the songs were formed. However, we asked MC, DJ and producer Alap Momin to listen to the demoes and before we knew it, he was on a flight from Harlem to Iceland to work with us. The result of his input only served to highlight our desire for a distinctive exploration of genres between each record. Basically three Icelandic techno-rockers brought the Harlem club scene to our studio in Iceland – it was a life changing week.


We don’t care for being placed neatly into a box, which has never been more evident in our career to date as it is throughout each of these three EPs. What is great about the creative workflow of Fufanu is that we’ve never just stopped. We’ve never hit a sound that we’re going to stick with, it has always been about discovering what it is we want to make during each moment, and to just keep on exploring.

There’s this crazy need for people to always categorise everything. Life isn’t just on or off, good or bad – it’s everything in the middle.

Tokyo Video Premiered

Tokyo is the first song from this record we worked on with Nick Zinner,  made us realize that we wanted to work together. It’s about coming back to your wins and losses in your daily reality after a week in Tokyo. Best/weirdest vacation I ever had, cut from the universe and placed in this mad bubble that Tokyo is.

The idea of doing this video was born when we met the artist and photographer Jonatan Gretarsson to be featured in his new book last summer (Jonatan no.3). His style is great and the way he has managed to capture the personality of his subjects in photos is really beautiful so doing a video with him was exciting. We had no idea what would happen on the day of shooting but when we arrived to the studio he had baroque music playing really loud and one by one we stood in front of the camera for more then 20 min each! The result is a black and white video portrait of us… we find it mesmerizing – wonder why?
