Final Fantasy Announces London show at the Union Chapel on January 25th 2010
Following the announcement of new album Heartland (January 18th 2010), Final Fantasy has now been confirmed to headline the Union Chapel in London on January 25th.
The past few years have seen Owen Pallett touring as Final Fantasy, his “one-man band”. The New York Times observed that “Pallett seems to regard the pop rule book with gleefully iconoclastic relish," marveling at “live shows that compress all the wonder and virtuosity of an illusionist’s routine into a three-and-a-half-minute pop song."
Owen Pallett named his violin-looping live project Final Fantasy as a nod to the unending series of operatic, melodramatic video games. After 2005’s Has A Good Home and 2006’s He Poos Clouds, Domino are proud to be releasing Final Fantasy’s third long player, Heartland. Recorded over nine months in four countries, the album concerns a young, ultra-violent farmer named Lewis and the fictional world of Spectrum.
