Handsome Furs - Handsome Furs Hate This City (from Plague Park)

Handsome Furs were an indie-rock band which formed in 2005 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The band consisted of Dan Boeckner (vocals, guitar) and his wife, Alexei Perry (keyboards, vocals). Boeckner is also a member of the bands Wolf Parade and Atlas Strategic. Handsome Furs have released three albums on Sub Pop: “Plague Park” (2007), “Face Control” (2009) and “Sound Kapital” (2011). The band’s name comes from the title of a short story that Alexei was writing at the time of band’s conception. Plague Park was released on May 22, 2007. Boeckner’s disenchanted vocals thinly resonate while cloaked in a frenzied undertone of fear and uncertainty, all punctuated by bare drum machine beats. Through the course of each track, a deep-seated sense of longing is leveled out by staunch realism as a restless disdain for both urban life and smaller towns collide. Handsome Furs toured Europe before having recorded any songs, and has since opened for the likes of Paavoharju, Islaja, David Cross and Modest Mouse before having released a proper record.
