Avant-indie duo Febueder bless us with new release ‘Dire Science’, the latest outing into the weird and wonderful world of the band.
The experienced and experimental twosome have unveiled some of the most compelling indie floating around the stratosphere in the last few years, with tracks like ‘Paramount Tether’ and ‘Morning Yawn’ emitting buzz from underground and industry circles alike. ‘Dire Science’ sees the band re-emerge after a quiet 2022, exploring and progressing their sound to unwavering heights.
Texturally the cut is striking but subtle, enveloping the listener in its hazy essence. The almost whispered vocals, alongside the off-kilter production, draw you closer into the ambiguous narrative.
Speaking on the single and its recording process, one half of the band Kieran explains: “The track is an elaborate collision of elements. I live-recorded percussion and edited the majority of hits to sound like a drum machine, the metallic hits were played on the interface and kicks were played on the side of the bathtub. “The chorus ‘Lully gone whip’ is a nod to my dearest friend’s nickname, the sequence of words developed from a literal description to a playfully empowering mantra. It expresses something liberating.”
The new single comes alongside the welcomed announcement of ‘Follow the Colonnade’, the upcoming sophomore album from the pair, which promises to further entice listeners into the evolving sonic universe of Febueder. Additionally, this March the band set off on a UK and EU tour with shows in the likes of London, Manchester, Berlin and Copenhagen.
