Ed Harcout – Furnaces (Polydor)
|Ed Harcourt - Furnaces|
Release Date: 19th August 2016
Brooding British indie legend Ed Harcourt is back with an album and single out on the same day. ‘Furnaces’ is the aforementioned single and it’s a horn laden delight of soul stirring proportions. The swaggering guitars and loose drums are just made for festivals and sweeping landscapes or at the very least Jools Holland’s studio. Throw Elbow’s epic soundscapes in to a bag with Jon Spencer’s cool and the sombre soul of Aloe Blacc before soaking it in the darkest red wine and leaving to steep in an old gentleman’s club that reeks of leather and cigar smoke. This is classy stuff and bodes well for the album if the spirit of this tune runs through the forthcoming collection.
