Download Then See: Fury Things At The Burlington

2014_05_fury_things.jpg Fury Things is a power trio hailing from Minneapolis / St. Paul, and they are firmly riding the current trend revisiting and building upon mid-'90s indie rock.

Fuzz pedals get stomped, drums get thumped and bass strings get plunked; all within an inch of their lives. Poking through the thunder are melodies that wouldn't sound out of place strummed on an acoustic guitar in the middle of a college quad. This is catchy stuff. It's just so big and fuzzy and warm sounding; we fell immediately in love.

Fury Things are in town tomorrow to play The Burlington, so we suggest you stream their latest EP below. If you dig it you can download the whole thing for free, or if you really like it throw the band a few bucks for their fine work. Either way, don't miss out on this.

Fury Things play with Soft Speaker, The Dead On, and Warm Things on Saturday, May 17 at The Burlington, 3425 W Fullerton, 9 p.m., $7 suggested donation, 21+
