After a short hiatus, Danish duo Furns glide smoothly back into focus with their new single – Mater Dolorosa.
The beautiful simplicity of this Danish duo (Monika Faludi and Mathias Dahl Andreasen) has become an adorable art form, heightened in no small part by the soulful tones of lead singer Monika.
Crafted together with real instruments, their dreamy sonics are immediately evident from this tracks serenely warm opening chords. The mix, slightly emphasized by Mathias on bass guitar, never conflicts with Monikas’ silky foreground vocals. Everything works in harmony with Furns.
The cover artwork reveals the song’s namesake – Mater Dolorosa, otherwise known as Our Lady of Sorrows. The Sorrowful Mother is an image of Mary as she was when she stood by the side of Jesus’ cross. Furns has always had a meditative calmness to their music and a connection to the spiritual. This single presents their soft, loving soul.
Furns should be the first name on your list for music lovers who prioritise authenticity, refinement, and quality over anything else.
