Dancing between solidity and abstraction, Faux Furrs tune into various colorful dimensions of their weird world.
Gentle and biting guitars blended across spacious synthesizers are held up by tight robust rhythm, and smoothed out with light harmonized lyricism. With genre influences extending from rock roots to neo-psychedelia and dream pop, Faux Furrs' aroma is never dull. From basements to large venues, and festival stages, the group has evolved over the years, both in mentality and performance, into a peculiar organism. Hues combine through fluid and filtered lenses as the band's perceptions come alive in sonic murals, pulsating with rippling neon outlines.
Moving from the garage-flavored psyche of Chicago's late 2010's underground music scene, the band continually ventures to further reaches of musical expression. Led by songwriter Ryan Deffet, the group reaches for nuggets in lofty spaces, upgrading their craft with which to travel our cosmic waves. Together they have traveled to tour and have played mid-tier festivals like SXSW, Postock (curated by Ohmme), Deff Jam, and DZ fest. The band has shared the stage with national touring acts, such as Deep Sea Diver, Sugar Candy Mountain, No Vacation, Okey Dokey, Dreamgirl, and Saint Pé among others.
The group's last physical release was in late 2018 with their EP Canopy, released by Dumpster Tapes (Cut Worms, Cafe Racer, Bnny). After that came a taste of upcoming efforts with the single 'Worlds Made Of Words.'
Pushing trough the trying times of the COVID pandemic and other world-impacting events, Faux Furrs are working on a new full length release for 2022, set to be their most honest and explorative piece yet.
