French Style Furs is the beautifully tenebrous side project of Cold War Kids
members Nathan Willett and Matt Maust, and We Barbarians' Nathan Warketin. The trio's first single, "Turn or Burn", promises to continue in the musicians' well tapped vein of gorgeous inky poetry. It sounds like the Odyssey of Brooklyn meets the Iliad of LA: an epic poem of empty streets and suffocating loneliness. Dissonant beats and melodies collide with a uniquely forceful vocal performance. It is as understated as grandeur can get.
