I March To The Beat Of My Own Drummer

I haven't reported on Abu Dhabi weather for a while, to Toons' utter dismay - so here goes: have you ever burned the soles of your feet (through shoes) on tarmac? I have. Last week. Walked from parked car to office - hmmm about 250 metres worth, and haven't recovered since. I am paying for all past and future sins here, few weeks, just a few more weeks and the hell will be over. Until then, I refuse to touch the ground. Or hold the steering wheel with bare hands. O.o
Dark Furs (Silverlake, CA)

Dark Furs is a duo formed in 2010, London born Suzanne May (vocals) and SC based guitarist Chad Philipps. They released their debut EP in May 2012, featuring 5 songs of bubbling energy disguised under a dream pop tag. They site Joy Division as one of their influences. (I hear a nod to Cocteau Twins, too - especially in their tune French Love).
Suzanne's singing style reminds me a lot of She Keeps Bees Jessica Larrabee's - impressive control over their vocals - switching from fiery to reserved and almost demure, commanding that you stop and pay attention to what they have to say.
Very little information about Dark Furs out there at the moment - I found an interview HERE
