Despite being relatively early in their life as a band, FUR sound like a band already capable of crafting intelligent songs; penning a particularly nostalgic strain of guitar music but making it sound fresh again. Taking the age-old love song trope and reinvigorating it, theirs are tracks that feel familiar and classic but with a vibrancy that’s entirely new. “The three most written-about things are love, money and sex”, mentions lead vocalist Murray. “One I’m not that comfortable writing about, and I don’t have that much money, but everyone’s felt some feeling of love and there’s something powerful about that. It’s the strongest emotional connection I can have with a song.”
FUR have a busy year of festivals and touring and the PRS Foundation Momentum fund is going to help immeasurably in allowing us to do that both in the UK and abroad.
“The Momentum fund is going to help us get our music out into the world and gives us flexibility to concentrate on writing and recording.”
