Biography / Info
Comprised of members Ryan O’Rourke, Michael O’Connor, Zach Pliska and Johanna Champagne, Detroit quartet FUR is an engulfing wall of sound. Moody and energetic, they convey a lush, minor-keyed pop sensibility that belies their post-punk veneer. Simply put, a clattering, beat-driven, reverb-drenched machine with 80’s-inspired synth… and you can dance to it.
Their debut release, recorded with Jim Kissling at Tempermill Studios, was released in March 2010. The follow-up EP Devastate The Details,(released August 13, 2010) was tracked as a full band on the studio floor in an attempt to capture the noisier, more frantic sound the four were starting to cultivate during live sets. Recorded over a long weekend at Roshambo Studios, FUR then decided to again work with Jim Kissling in order to mix and master the six tracks. Currently the band is writing between shows and plans to be back in the studio this winter to work towards a full length. Expect a release date in the first half of 2011.
