The Crystal Furs have joined independent label Reckless Yes for a full UK release of their third album Beautiful and True in 2021.
Based in Portland, USA the band gave the album a limited release through Subjangle in 2020 but have now signed with Reckless Yes for a fuller release across vinyl and CD.
50thirdand3rd said of the band they have, ‘a radiant sound that recalls the works of other indie-pop darlings like Snail Mail, and Girl In Red along with seminal bands like, Camera Obscura, Throwing Muses and The Bangles” while Get In Her Ears describe them as, ‘winning alt. indie-pop purveyors in the mould of Helen Love’.
On signing to the label the band said, “We’re thrilled to be a part of Reckless Yes and to bring ‘Beautiful and True’ to a whole new set of fans.
“Being on a label that’s inclusive and diverse means a lot to us, and it’s an honor to join so many amazing label mates – bands we’ve loved like Bugeye, Chorusgirl, Fightmilk, Panic Pocket, and more.
“We can’t wait to work with Reckless Yes to grow and see where our future takes us!”
Co-founder of Reckless Yes Pete Darrington said, “I’m ridiculously excited to be helping bring The Crystal Furs to a wider audience. Their music is grin inducing joy from beginning to end. I’ve always had a soft spot for Sarah Records-esque unashamed blissed out indiepop and sixties girl groups like the Ronettes and this adorable trio blend both while giving it a unique twist.
“The album we’re putting out – Beautiful and True – is exactly that. The perfect antidote to 2020, you’re dead inside if you can’t find a place in your heart for this band!”
Co-founder of Reckless Yes Sarah Lay said, “In Beautiful and True The Crystal Furs have made a personal but ubiquitous record, full of upbeat melodies, masterfully blending genres without ever feeling anything but honest. It jangles and chimes, sweeps and swoops while lyrically it can be juxtaposed to that upbeat sound often reflecting something which resonates with us all, whatever our experience: being ourselves and shedding expectations.
“It’s an honour to get to support them to introduce more people to their music, and help amplify their voices.”
