FAFA GALOURE has release the new single “Euphoria”, the last single from the band’s debut album. Lyrically the track explores themes of fearless unconditional trust and love with the band offering a restrained and dreamlike backdrop punctuated by a suitably uplifting string arrangement. It’s the perfect song to spend under the cover or in front of a fireplace with your loved ones during the cold winter months.
Fafa Galoure is an intriguing Israeli “Deep Dive Rock” band fronted by vocalist and songwriter Efrat Cohen. The band debut album ‘As You Are’ was released at the tail end of 2017 and was backed up with numerous shows in their home country as well as a European tour.
The foundations for the band were set in 2011 when Efrat returned from an extended trip to India and began shooting ideas back and forth with longtime friend and collaborator Assi Ashkenazi. The two began processing the materials Efrat had been accumulating and the compositions began to take on a life of their own. “For me the core of the song; the words, the content and the meaning come before the musical arrangement, I love this process in which we try to give the music different arrangements and expressions“.
Following various iterations, today Efrat and Assi are joined by Omer Hershman handling live and studio production, Karni Postel in cello, Ofer Priion in the guitar, Ran Yakobovitch on drums and Adi Gigi on bass and double bass.
The combination of raw and emotional themes that constitute Efrat‘s spontaneous expression of art is ideally complemented by the musical uniqueness of the ensemble and adept production. The result is a unique and elegant sound that preserves the character and meaning of the songs.
Fafa Galoure is currently putting the final touches to a brand new EP for 2019 and will return to the road with a tour of Portugal in the making for summer.
