Not only that but you get an extra track with this 2-part release- 'TikTok Twat'. Worth a listen for the title alone!
Channelling some quirky, lo-fi, DIY vibes, Furrowed Brow’s new release is great fun with a sing-a-long chorus, squealy synth sound and catchy riff.
Underneath the layer of avant-garde musicality are acerbic, witty and well observed lyrics.
In ‘TikTok Twat‘ there are some absolute gems such as ‘Kissing boyfriend on a beach/Bikini arsed-turgid peach’. I guarantee one listen and this will be in your head all day.
Self-described Manchester misfits, their music is innovative, iconoclastic art-punk tinged with bleak humour and Brechtian glamour. And if that hasn’t sold you, think B-52s and The Fall with the appreciation of bleak British literature that you might get with The Smiths (the song ‘Jill‘ is reference to a novel by Philip Larkin).
Recorded live and fully analogue, new single ‘Jill’ fuses exuberant R’n’R with twisted 60s garage and a synth-soaked glam rock refrain, about loneliness, anxiety, isolation and infatuation.
‘TikTok Twat‘ is about….well, a twat on TikTok.
Furrowed Brow are: Richey (vocals), Marc (synth, organ, vocals), Evie (bass, vocals), Meg (guitar), Ruairi (drums/vocals).
‘Jill’ and ‘TikTok Twat’ are available now! Find out your listening options HERE.
