The Rosebuds: NEW Album 'Night Of The Furies'

"The Furies were Roman goddesses named Tisiphone (avenger of murder), Megaera (grudging), and Alecto (constant anger). They were born from night and they punish crimes on Earth that go unpunished. We conjured them during a tropical depression in the summer of 2006. We were almost in a fever from the threat of falling trees. The wind was not the worst we’d seen, but it peeled back the skin of old fears. In this condition, the senses are heightened. You surely know what I mean. We began to speak—just out loud--to clear away the fear hanging all around..."

"We set about recording these and other stories right away and Night of the Furies is the result. It is a dark, sexy, danceable, nuanced, and sublime record. We produced it ourselves, which was the only way it could have been done, naturally, considering the content."

- The Rosebuds

This song from the upcoming release shows just how sumptuous The Rosebuds (Ivan Howard and Kelly Crisp) can be, the smooth vocals, the swirling strings, all bringing back the best of British pop from the eighties.
