There’s no feeling like it when a song has the power to transport you to a totally unique soundscape of meditative reflection. Luckily enough for us, newly signed band The Furniture achieve just that. Dropping their new project early next year, the fresh pairing combine their two respective playing styles for their first teaser, debuting a spontaneous yet chilling sound.
Inspired by the German experimental music of the 1970’s such as Cluster, and the minimalist composer Moondog, the signees lead single “Strom” incorporates amorphous drones throughout, sprinkled with analogue synths to emulate a composition of spontaneity and surprise. The record was taken in its entirety from a single live performance at theReverb club in Baltimore, during which producer Steve Wright gave the duo free reign to weave their mutual understandings of composition and sound into eight free-form tracks. Speaking of their LP, the pair explained, “Making a record free form can be a little risky”, “[but] it can be one of the most fulfilling aspects of recording, in the way that each time you go back and listen, it can take you to a place or an emotion yet to be discovered”.
The LP, featuring tracks such as “The Sloth”, “Set to Quiver” and “Kontrail”, promises to traverse sonic ground whilst keeping a strong overall identity.
