For Denmark’s Tomas Barfod, rhythms manifest themselves in a variety of forms. A natural drummer comfortable behind the set, Barfod is unafraid to switch over to the studio and produce tracks fitting for the club or headphones.
As drummer for Whomadewho, Barfod has toured the world (with LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip and others), sharing their distinct, deviant dance rock sound, and helping to create two full-length releases for Gomma and a mini-LP on Kompakt.
As a solo artist, Barfod has operated under multiple guises, unleashing house hits as TomBoy on Gomma, collaborating with Kasper Bjørke, composing with the illusive Jatoma trio on Kompakt, and assembling remixes of Gorillaz, Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party and many others.
The ‘Broken Glass’ EP is Barfod’s first venture with Friends of Friends, a 12″ that features two new cuts along with remixes from Permanent Vacations’ Jacob Korn and FoF’s very own Shlohmo. “Broken Glass” juxtaposes space and beauty with darkness and the macabre, while the B-Side, “Beach Party”, was recently featured on Brodinski’s Fabric 60.
The ‘Broken Glass’ EP is out March 20th, leading up to Barfod’s upcoming Friends of Friends full-length, ‘Salton Sea’, available May 8th.
