Fur - a great new band who are going places
It may seem strange but although I went to see Matt this review is about the support band Fur. They did 25 minutes and every song was excellent. Fab catchy tunes, great bass lines and some changes of pace and mood, both within and between songs. They have a bit of a 60s guitar pop vibe, with vocal harmonies, yet a millennial feel. Front man Will guitars, swans around and is dolefull, soulful and funny. How do you do that all at once? His voice has a great range from reedy depths to an athletic falsetto which he uses a lot. I loved the hooks in the songs. And although the songs are short they each have a twist or a turn or some other surprise which isn't contrived but leaves you wanting to hear the song again. Oh, and they look cool, but not so cool that they have to hide they are enjoying themselves Everyone was enjoying themselves.
