Post-punk duo Deux Furieuses is set to play Newport’s Le Pub. The band comprising Scottish vocalist and guitarist Ros Cairney and Greek/London-based drummer Vas Antoniadou formed in London during 2013 with a mission to shine a light on the sickening inequalities they saw in the world around them.
The duo went on to release their debut album ‘Tracks of Wire’ in 2016 and signing to Xtra Mile Recordings in 2019, they released their Rob Ellis (PJ Harvey) produced second album ‘My War Is Your War’.
Recently completing a tour across the UK as part of Brix Smith’s current live band (with Ros and Vas playing guitar and drums respectively) in support of PiL; the duo is now taking the songs of their third long player ‘Songs from Planet Earth’ to the masses.
Recorded in October 2021 as part of a two-week residential album session at Grange Farm Studio, the album was self-produced by the band for the first time.
A band on a mission and unafraid to make a bold statement, of the themes at the heart of the new album they say: “‘Songs from Planet Earth’ is a beating heart signal out from this world as we fall spinning into a vortex of pandemic, isolation, avoidable deaths, political corruption, personal mourning and ultimately survival. The album documents the journey from the city to the countryside like refugees in search of sanctuary.”
- Catch Deux Furieuses, supporting War on Women at Newport’s Le Pub on August 26.
