The Fiery Furnaces // ‘Down at the So and So on Somewhere’

Words: Sharc Bolan / @sharcbolan

  • Out now after a 10 year wait via Third Man Records.
  • Don’t miss the physical 7″ with b-side, ‘The Fortune Teller’s Revenge’, being sold as a bundle to support Black Lives Matter.
  • This is a self-proclaimed ‘regretful song about regret.’

Aaaaand they’re back! The Friedberger siblings (Eleanor and Matthew) are back making music together for the first time in over a decade after the last aptly named ‘I’m Going Away’ LP. If you’re looking to fill the gaps in between, don’t worry, both have solo albums under their belts too.

With synth-backed melodies and electronic stylings over a mid-tempo Soviet drum machine and Eleanor’s drumming, have fun trying to figure out who’s singing what and when (something the band enjoy about the tune), and watch out for the unexpected sparkling breaks.
