Indie88 Premiere: Venus Furs drop new enveloping track ‘Chaos and Confusion’

Catch Venus Furs at Hamilton's Casbah on January 27

Montreal’s Venus Furs have just dropped a new reverb-heavy, enveloping track called “Chaos and Confusion.”

The rock-influenced melodies have a dreamy vibe to it, with powerful guitar lines and crooning, airy vocals based on a shoegaze-inspired sound. “The lyrics in the opening of the song came to me, unconnected to anything in particular at first,” the band explains to Indie88. “As the song unfolded, the meaning took shape to be about a game of cards in which the dealer is cheating his opponent.”

Listen to “Chaos and Confusion” below.
 

 
The Simon Petraki-produced track is inspired by Cat Power’s The Greatest, TV On The Radio, and The Brian Jonestown Massacre, and it comes as the second single off of the Venus Furs’ forthcoming debut album, which is set for release this year.

You can catch the Venus Furs at Hamilton’s Casbah on January 27th.
