These Furrows

These Furrows are one of the fastest rising bands in Leicester, the same city that moulded the creation of big names such as Maybeshewill and Kyte, and having already been signed to Underdog Records the three piece have built themselves a reputation as dynamic and contemporary. They made their first release ‘Masks’ in October 2009 and this subsequently gained support from Huw Stephens on Radio 1 and Huey Morgan from 6 Music, let alone the playtime and praise it received amongst those more locally. They released ‘Without Manner’ in 2010, which gained airplay on 6 music and XFM, and shortly afterwards the band was touring around Britain and Northern Ireland with Strait Laces and on separate dates with The Fun Lovin’ Criminals. Recently they played  the introducing stage at Leeds and Reading and not too long ago they recorded their first album with Tony Platt (AC/DC, Bob Marley, Iron Maiden) and Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro) to which they’re now preparing a string of character based music videos.

They have a serious outlook on both, the music they write and its intention, but at the same time their music is youthful and innovative and they enjoy experimenting with new and contemporary styles and genres. This is clear in what they write, with the music being fast, edgy and dynamic one second (Without Manner), though souring and majestic the next (Clarity).  The band was created by long time friends writing music together and then recording it on a laptop at home, which is the same way they tend to write today – they say what they create is influenced by their boredom of music. With their album due to be released shortly, these are one to watch.
