Dark Furs – Won’t See Me
Alt popsters Dark Furs, almost lost me at the intro. It’s that same plink, plink, plink intro used in so many pop rock tunes these days; But there was a variance. Something that indicated difference just ahead, and I stuck it out. I’m happy I waited! Here on Won’t See Me from the December 2012 self-titled EP, vocalist Suzanne May wails tunefully through the verses and refrain. Suzanne has a confident, strident vocal, which is applied with just enough echo to make Won’t See Me sound full and fresh.
Based out of Newcastle, CA, the two-piece has its origins in both the UK (Where Suzanne was born) and California, where the other half of Dark Furs, songwriter/guitarist Chad Phillips is from. The two met up in 2011 and the musical chemistry was complete.
