Strangely, but not surprisingly, Dan Boeckner ( Wolf Parade ) is at it again, this time partnering up with fiance Alexei Perry. Together they form the duo, Handsome Furs, a two person creepy-folk collective that is built on repetition, minimalist themes, and a drum machine. The nine song debut tells the story of big and small town disdain and romantic nostalgia, in a dark , brooding manner. Comparitively, they are by far the darkest and most thought out of the three projects, a definite step in the right direction for Boeckner and Perry. In light of things to come, Handsome Furs debuts their upcoming release, Plague Park, tuesday, May 22nd.
Oh, did i mention that i’m obsessed with them…well I am.
