Last spotted on Spearhead asking for spare change, FD returns with four most dusky velvet soul rollers. "Heart Of Gold" takes us on a contemporary liquid trip (think Maduk's Dutch contemporaries on a deeper day) with its instantly uplifting chords and euphoric vocals. "More Than Ever" takes us much deeper into FD's sound with a classic stretchy bassline and a cosmic weave of reversed tones and textures. "Still The Same" carries a cool air of smoky jazz thanks to the vocal sample while "Snowdrops" closes the show on the haziest note of the EP thanks the fluttering flutes and playful vocal twists. Complete with an instrumental of "Heart Of Gold"... Lovely.
His fifth release on Soul Deep in as many months, Furney is properly shooing them out this year. The quality is as high as the quantity too... The guitar twangs on "Frozen Hours" are so crisp you could slice ice with them while the subs on "Out On Love" are so sassy and slinky they could - if played too loudly - impregnate you. Restrained yet weighted, funky yet fiery; Furney is killing it this year.
