Brighton-based quartet, FUR met in Brighton and made a name for themselves as one of the UK’s most promising bands through live shows and releases soaked in 60s reminiscence. The song If You Know That I’m Lonely (what the band consider to be the true starting point of their now loved sound) was the first song to reach a wide audience racking up 20 million views in two years and cemented their position as an emerging talent.
In September of 2018, the band signed to Nice Swan records (Sports Team, Pip Blom) and began recording their self-titled debut EP with Andy Savours (The Magic Gang, Sorry, My Bloody Valentine). Singles Angel Eyes and Him and Her were both released in November and February accompanied by music videos directed by friend Ed Zorab. Midway through their first headline tour later that February, ahead of a sold-out show at London’s Omeara, the EP was released.
With their first Radio 1 play courtesy of Huw Stephens, continued support from Steve Lamacq, 3 weeks on the Radio 6 playlist and many festival appearances, the band find themselves on a good path and with a continuously growing fan base.
