FUR is an indie rock band that emerged from Brighton, England. Formed in 2015, the band consists of members William Murray (vocals/guitar), Harry Saunders (guitar), Tavinder Singh-Bhachu (bass), and Flynn Whelan (drums). FUR's music draws inspiration from the classic sounds of 1960s and 1970s rock and pop, incorporating elements of jangly guitars, melodic hooks, and introspective lyrics. With their nostalgic sound and retro aesthetic, FUR gained attention in the indie music scene. They captured the essence of vintage rock while infusing it with their own contemporary twist. The band's influences range from iconic acts like The Beatles, The Kinks, and The Velvet Underground to more recent indie rock bands such as Mac DeMarco and Real Estate. FUR released their debut single, "If You Know That I'm Lonely," in 2017, which garnered significant acclaim and established their distinctive sound. In their subsequent releases, including singles like "Angel Eyes" and "Him and Her," FUR's music often explores themes of love, longing, and introspection, resonating with listeners who appreciate heartfelt and evocative songwriting.
Acknowledging the parallels between the historical significance of today’s climate, and the long-foretold pertinency of FUR’s biggest career step to date, do the group believe in fate? “There’s something looking over us- a natural development of patience and how we perceive things.” – a trademark consciousness which makes FUR the influential sweetheart’s, they’ve truly grown to become.
