Summer 2015 saw the release of Furman’s most fully realised and streamlined record, Perpetual Motion People, chock-full of snarling, zestful tunes and invested with the feeling that, this time, people are paying attention. ‘One of the main things my music is about is feeling totally insane!” Furman concludes. “I feel desperate a lot – desperate to try to explain something, I’m not sure what it is. You can hear it in a lot our songs; that I’m trying to shake people by the shoulders and explain something. And when you feel like that, here’s some music to put on!’

Critical acclaim for Perpetual Motion People:

Perpetual Motion People is the restless sound of a genuine one-off in a generic world.” The Guardian – 4 Stars **** (Album Of The Week)

“A work of rare honesty, beauty and exhilarating bravery.”  Sunday Times (Album Of The Week)

“Crucially, Furman’s dislocation doesn’t come out as unlistenable angst. It comes out as tunes… That’s 13 songs, with 13 nagging hooks and 13 singalong choruses; no mean feat in any genre, let alone a few.” The Observer 4 Stars **** (Album Of The Week)

“These smart, spirited songs confirm him as the brightest and most interesting star to have appeared in alt-pop for some time.” Q – 4 Stars ****

“A yowling, nervy, sickeningly eloquent blend of Jonathan Richman, Woody Allen and Armistead Maupin, Furman delivers high-speed drama full of bristling riffs and frazzled joie de vivre.” MOJO – 4 Stars ****
