Needle Drop: Furies (s/t)

Sometimes simple is best. Meet Furies, a Spanish-born trio that leaves the empty frills behind—not letting worthless racket disrupt their clean glam rock.

Although they hail from Madrid, the band has clearly borrowed a few licks from the American musical canon. Their new EP has the swing of the ’50s, with riffs reminiscent of Chuck Berry and other memorable founders of rock ‘n’ roll. It even includes the group’s own rendition of “Nutbush City Limits” by Ike & Tina Turner. However, their music isn’t simply a cheap copy of rock icons. Furies have taken these tones and filtered them through their own Spanish energy—finding an exciting new sound in the interstices of European and American rock.

Take the track “Tell Me Why.” It starts simply—with a punchy guitar riff underscored by a well-paced drum kick. Suddenly the group’s lead vocalist, María, enters singing English lyrics tinged with a foreign inflection, giving the track a distinct, almost uncanny feel. It invites the audience to listen carefully, rewarding their effort with a solo, packed with quick slides and full bends, that ends the song.

Furies’ self-titled EP is out now via Bandcamp.
