Real Fur announce debut single and launderette tour
aaamusic | On 30, Mar 2011
After recently taking the capital by storm with their self-hosted Safari Funk Launderette parties. East-London Trio Real Fur are set to release their unique brand of tropical indie-pop in the form of debut single ‘Animal’, which will be available on 6th June through their own label, Safari Funk Records.
Real Fur are the band that once again prove that innovation gets people talking; recently gaining notable coverage for their Safari Funk Parties, which they host in Launderettes around the capital. Compromising of childhood London friends Matt and George and Walsall born Leo, Real Fur creates adorable, intelligent indie-pop music that blends catchy tropical-funk guitar with up-tempo melodic bass and danceable rhythmic drums.
As well as the release of debut single ‘Animal’, Real Fur will be taking their Safari Funk parties on the road, touring the U.Ks top Launderettes in May in support of the singles release.
Real Fur’s debut single ‘Animal’ will be available to download on the 6th of June 2011, through Safari Funk Records, but for now you can check out the debut single below.
