FUR have also announced their biggest headline tour to date that finishes with a show at London’s Scala
After the success of their debut EP released earlier this year, and standout performances at The Great Escape, Brighton’s FUR today return with their first new material since in the form of “Nothing (Until Something Else Comes Along)”, 3 minutes of perfect, hook-filled pop music.
“It’s a step in the direction that some of the newer stuff lies, the perfect in between point of what we have done and what’s to come,” explains front man Murray. Immediately recognisable as FUR, but with a greater sense of directness and immediacy, you can see the bridge being created; thematically, meanwhile, it also sees the singer speaking more candidly than ever. “It was written while I was at the end of a relationship that I didn’t really want to be in anymore but I didn’t know how to tackle it; going back and forth to London, drinking wine on the train,” he says. “I normally like writing songs that have a slightly wider angle, but I think this one has a more directly biographical feel.”
As well as the new single, last month they announced their biggest headline tour to date culminating in a show at London’s Scala on September 25th.
Their self-titled EP was released earlier in the year on Nice Swan Records (Pip Blom, Sports Team, Sweaty Palms) and was described by DIY as “a pure, twinkle-eyed joy from start to finish.” You can purchase the band’s EP on 12” vinyl direct from the label HERE.
