Handsome Furs

Handsome Furs - Damage
Handsome Furs - Cheap Music

On Sound Kapital, husband/wife duo Dan Boeckner and Alexei Perry create '80s-influenced (sans gimmicky bullshit, of course), exclusively synth-produced tracks of enthusiastic electro-pop goodness. Discerning listeners may recognize Boeckner's unique vocal stylings from renowned indie act Wolf Parade, but don't let that association fool you - Handsome Furs' brand of dancefloor-themed pop songs for the disenfranchised doesn't need some silly musical comparison for its insanely catchy and wholly anthemic sound to shine on its own.

Highly recommended.

Sound Kapital will be released on June 28th, courtesy of Sub Pop
