North Texas synth-pop trio Felt & Fur produce dark danceable energy with eurythmic charge. Alizsha Pennington's pleading vocals and dramatic guitar riffs create a solemn counter to the pulsing keyboard melodies, pounding percussion and warm analogue synths of Randall Minick and Jarrod Estes. Together, Felt & Fur form the perfect symbiosis of chaos and ritual.
The group’s sophomore album Held made its debut release on Triptych Records in November of 2018. It was immediately heralded as 2018 "Album of the Year" in the local press. The album's single, "Pulling a Thread" made “Song of the Day” in Central Track, Dallas' premier culture guide and "Music Video of the Day" on White Light White Heat. Driven by organic spacious keyboards, reverb-laden static, and hissing drones that grow to literally charge the air, Held features hypnotic, driving rhythms, spatial chord progressions and deep, repetitive, trance-inducing scapes-of-sound. Layered with rich tones, dynamic volume and enormous emotional range, Pennington's agonizing and dramatic vocals guide listeners through the labyrinth of penetrating, enduring synth pulsations generated by Minick and Estes.
