ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
***NEW COPIES OF UNFURL ARE BEING SENT TO CD BABY DEC 1st, 2008***

On Unfurl, Burnt Fur craft new wave influences into a debut album that explores the beauty and brutality of nature and social behavior.

Lead singer and guitarist Scott Harrison produced the album to sound “slightly charred, like the band name,” creating a bombastic, overblown sound from which the band launch intricate melodies, swathes of electronic noise and furrowing guitars. Reverb drenched electronic drums punctuate the tracks while Harrison’s vocals soar through feelings of elation through frustration. The well received singles "Vitriol" (May 2007) and "Radiate" (November 2007) are also featured on the album.

Inspiration for the album came from numerous sources, the forefront of which were the 1979 treasure map/children's book Masquerade by Kit Williams, New Order's second album Power, Corruption and Lies, 1980’s video games, and the social politics surrounding the Gay marriage debates raging in Massachusetts from 2003-2006. The lyrical content of the songs allude to seasonal changes from the first day of spring through the first day of winter, pontificating on the ways social behavior can be effected by one’s environment.

The band features multi-talented members Patrik Tirda performing sampled electronics and synthesizers, Ian St. Germain on bass and electronic drums, and Shana Slater as second vocalist, and also on bass and electronic drums. During performances the members switch instruments between songs, continuously engaging their audience with their multi-faceted musical approach.

The band will be booking live performances in support of the album throughout 2008. Visit the band's official website or MySpace page for futher details.

All that you will need!
This is made with all of the beauty and energy of what has been missing in music for quite sometime. I have been listening to this CD a few times a week since I got it and I tell you there would be no such thing as regret if you got it for yourself.

The songs are fun for dancing, well written and arranges. Althought the lyrics do tell another story... one can dance! The band has sure control on how to make the New Wave genre come to life.

As mentioned, the lyrics are thoughtful and strong against arrangements that are bold enough to carry them. Thankfully as credit to the band, there is no one intsrument that overpowers the other.

Get this CD and let your party begin!
I suggest a trip to see them live!
Now isn't that better than a tic tac pie?
