Experimental duo The furniture drop the mesmerizing instrumental “Strom” and give us an insight into their upcoming self-titled debut album The Furniture. With a meditative feel based on smooth synths and pulsating beats, the track weaves a calming atmosphere in which one can lose oneself for hours.
Channeling creative freedom and sonic spontaneity, which formed the pillars of her artistic work, is ethereal and haunting in equal parts, while blurry, nature-centered images by Philippe Leonard transport us into a lush dystopian world that somehow feels as grounding as it is psychedelic.
To the Michael Kuhl and Matthew Pierce, their music as The Furniture is deeply rooted in their musical synergy and long history. As a complicated teaser of their first album as a duo, "Strom" establishes The Furniture as a couple propelled by the power of their combined exploratory tendencies.
By breaking up and merging their different playing styles into a coherent vortex of shape-changing soundscapes and emotional messages, the upcoming album will lead us into a world of experimentation, if the slim yet atmospheric arrangement of "Strom" is something.
