So I got this email last night from Kyle Werstein, who fronts an indie-power-pop act out of Minneapolis called the FURY THINGS. Who are heading this direction for Sled Island, along with some other west coast dates.
Interestingly, they were already near the top of my options for the Friday night, and now they’ve just been moved one notch higher in priority. Their new 7” they sent me the link for is powerful, aggressive, emotive – one of the most beautiful full-body blasts of fuzziness you’ll hear this year.
Now, that’s not available to stream for you, it’s tentatively set for release in mid-June on Manic Pop!, but I’m sure they’ll have some of them available at the show. In the meantime, we can stream one of their most recent singles, “Vapors”, from “EP2”. Which they’ll probably also have available at the merch table. You won’t be disappointed with this track either – trust me.
So check it out, then go to your Sled program and circle their set time (Friday at 11:30 upstairs in the Palomino with Circles, Stepmothers, and Warm Soda). Other gigs on the west coast swing are below.
