The Cell by Gemma Cotterell.

Fanfarlo's released their stunning third album Let's Go Extinct back in February. As the title suggests the lyrics were inspired by human evolution and possible futures, ideas that have been melded into big beautiful pop songs. Here founding member Simon Balthazar introduces their new single, Cell Song:



Cell Song is a song about the body. Most of us think of ourselves as an individual, a unity. Some sort of lone spirit living inside the head of a soft machine. But really we are the product of billions of little organisms that at one point decided that they were better off together, and so gave up their independence and joined together in a pact for survival. Maybe this constant noise of thoughts could be thought of as the incessant nattering and negotiating of all those billions of little creatures trying to settle their differences and act as one.
