FUR unveil 'Facing Home Mixtape'

Following on from the release of their James Skelly-produced single 'Grow Up' last month, Brighton's FUR have now unveiled a brand new mixtape, which was recorded during lockdown.

The new seven-track collection 'Facing Home Mixtape' was self-produced by the band themselves while working remotely in isolation, and continues that fresh and exciting sound they have been generating so far.

Speaking about the new release, frontman Murray said, "Part-written, but then fully recorded during lock-down, the mixtape is by far the most honest thing we have offered. No one else’s input besides ours, 7 tracks each giving their own angle on the FUR sound.

"Themes of isolation started to show in the songs written before anyone knew we were facing an isolated lock-down, so it feels like the perfect time to be releasing something like this. Being forced to reflect on the past and tackle some personal struggles means the songs are more reflective and true to life than some of our previous releases.

"It feels like we came into our own during the process of making this. No label or people getting their intentions in the way, we just had so much music being written and we were proud of, we needed to let people hear it and we weren’t gonna wait around until we could get into a studio.

"It’s given us the confidence to want to produce the album ourselves and it’s the perfect end-step for us to show people what we are capable of and what we are all about. The songwriting is better than it has ever been and things are only getting better from here."
