If you are a regular news reader and social media active user then the current world information overload is sure to take its toll. Everything from Brexit, Trump, hate crimes, terrorism, and just plain nasty comments can dishearten even the strongest of hearts and minds. Holidays provide a temporary escape; however, the escapism of music cannot be underestimated. It is a recommended self-help technique for dealing with stress, and if we could add a specific band to ease away tension then FURNS would be top of the list.
Danish duo (Monika Faludi and Mathias Dahl Andreasen) have released their new single – Keeper in an acoustic version and no matter where you are you’ll find yourself surrounded in a blanket of soothing goodness.
There’s no hiding place in acoustic versions. They are music fact-checkers as vocals no longer hide behind a wall of studio adjustments and effects. The result, as you’ll discover, is you become closer to the singer (in this case Monika) and everything feels more intimate and personal. Monika has nothing to fear from such an exam as she easily confirms herself as an outstanding vocalist who conveys the subtleties of emotions with graceful expression.
Furns will be releasing an entirely acoustic album later this year so we can all look forward to a beautifully relaxing end to 2018.
