Featured Artist: Fur

If big guitars and dark, dreamy atmospherics are your thing, then meet your new favorite band: Detroit’s gloom-wave rock quartet Fur. These guys bring together a slew of influences to create a sound strikingly somber, yet full of angst and energy. We’re hearing traces of Joy Division, The Cure, Interpol, Muse and a healthy dose of vintage British shoegaze. In a word, we’re talking epic. The band’s latest self-titled EP is available for free on their web site. Their track “Break Me My Love” was featured in this Mark Healey “Moments” video:
