Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Furore.
Furore is the new project from Roxy Brennan - aka Two White Cranes, aka one sixth of Joanna Gruesome, aka one of the UK DIY scene’s best songwriters - and it sees the Brighton-based singer ditching the guitars.
‘Eyelid’ is the first track to be taken from Furore’s debut EP, which is set to be released on 3rd April via new tape label Bleak Spring, set up by fellow DIY mainstay Mat Riviere. It follows recent debut single ‘Strenuous’.
Set around a simple synth riff and hand clap percussion, it’s a new sound that takes the sorrow of Brennan’s songwriting to the fore - where her work as Two White Cranes suited sunny days in the park, Furore looks set to soundtrack those cold walks home.
Furore’s debut EP comes out on 3rd April via Bleak Spring. Her next live show is at the Ivy House in Nunhead, London, on 28th March. Details here.
