FURR share official video for ‘Another Fable’

furrLeeds quartet FURR have shared a video for new single ‘Another Fable’, the first track to be taken from the next instalment of Leeds’ CPWM 7” Singles Club.

Speaking about the video, the bands Jack Byrne explains:

“We had so much fun making this video. Sam and Guy are enormous fans of RuPaul’s Drag Race, so when they were chatting about it with our videographer she suggested getting in touch with a couple of drag queens that she knew to star in the video. We knew that we wanted to do something less performance-based than we’ve done in the past, so we took the opportunity to do something that links in with the meaning behind the song. Or at least that’s the official story, I like to think that it’s just an excuse to dress up stupidly and laugh at ourselves.

We had a good laugh thinking up ideas for fake tabloid stories about ourselves, and it’s awesome that people were willing to help us out by sending us selfies to fit in with Sam’s bold new fashion trend. I hear it’s already tipped for the spring/summer walk at Milan this year. It made a nice change not having to mime along to a performance video this time around, I find that more effort than the real thing!”




Leeds singles club Come Play With Me have announced their next split single, to be released on the 14th of July. Continuing their tradition of highlighting the exceptional and diverse talent in the Leeds City Region, this next single will feature Leeds bands Furr & RIIB. These two fast risings acts find themselves joining the CPWM roster alongside the likes of Cinerama (The Wedding Present), Harkin (Sleater Kinney, Sky Larkin), Team Picture, Her Name Is Calla, Fizzy Blood, Deadwall, OFFICERS, ZoZo, Laminate Pet Animal, Esper Scout, Ceiling Demons & Maggie8.

Leading the next CPWM single is indie-math-pop-rock band RIIB. Initially the work of musician James Mainwaring of Django Django & Roller Trio, their new single ‘Conveyor Belt’ explores the punkier side of the band that Mainwaring built around himself for the project.

Starting life when James was still performing as a singer songwriter, ‘Conveyor Belt’ soon became a full band piece when the rest of the band made their mark on it. Although it’s one of the more upbeat and playful of their live set, the lyrics counterpoint by addressing the harrowing state of the American farm industry and those trapped within it.

Joining RIIB on the next CPWM single is Leeds four-piece Furr. Peddlers of no-nonsense pop melodies and huge riffs in the vein of QOTSA, Furr have enjoyed support from the likes of John Kennedy, Classic Rock Magazine & Upset magazine with their previous single releases. All living, writing, rehearsing and recording under the same roof, the group of musicians enjoy a kind of musical closeness and intuitive decision making most bands would kill for.


Furr’s Sam Jackson explains their contribution to the Come Play With Me single – “Another Fable is the frankenstein of all these different musical influences that make up what Furr it is about. If someone said ‘what do Furr sound like?’ this would be the song to play them. Loud in your face guitars and popish vocal melodies. There might be a guitar solo! It’s the first time we’ve been critical of things going on around us and what’s been pissing us off recently. It’s about how obsessed with people we are about people we’ve never met and all this pop culture we have shoved in our face constantly….”
