Limited Edition Blue Vinyl
At it's heart. this is a pop record, just one that's being delivered in gloriously manic fashion, taking in ballads, garage rock and Doo wop. The album delivers a cascade of memorably bristling hooks driven by a unique splicing of timeless influences with a restless urgency and combative spirit that shines through the American's vocals and lyrics. Having taken his time to work his way into the public consciousness, Furman's moment is unquestionably now, as he finally faces an expectant audience hungry for the next stage of his thrilling approach, on record and on stage. 'Perpetual Motion People' was recorded with Furman's current band The Boyfriends - comprising Jorgen Jorgensen (bass), Ben Joseph (keyboards, guitar), Sam Durkes (drums) and saxophonist Tim Sandusky - at studio Ballistico in Furman's home city of Chicago (though he's currently based in San Francisco). The album kicks off with 'Restless Year'. In it there's the rebellion of '90s indie rock, a string of sunshine-y '80s pop, and the snarl of '70s punk.
