Furs – “Second Chance”


Showing a dreamy folk sound with mystique, “Second Chance” is a recent track from Furs, the project of South London-based Fursey Rossi. The artist’s earlier material found inspiration from video games Rossi played as a teen, reflecting a more electronic sound. During lockdown, Rossi began incorporating more singer/songwriter elements into the sound, interweaving samples and synths alongside traditional instrumentation. “Second Chance” is a great example of such growth, evolving from quaint folk ardency into consuming late-night atmosphere, complete with reverbed brass and shimmering textures. “Second Chance” is a lovely late-night stroll of a listen.

Also recommended from Furs is the recently released “Stay Away,” streaming below. The saxophone emergence adds a lovely, atmospheric component, another great example of Furs’ convincing late-night aesthetic.

“Second Chance” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2021’ Spotify playlist.
