"One of the few bands about who are prepared to stand up and be counted"
Deux Furieuses return with another slice of hard-hitting social commentary with their new single ‘Are We Sexy Enough.’ They tell us the song ‘is about the conflicting pressures on girls in society and in the music business.’ Any notion that the band are mellowing, due to the song the nearest thing to a ‘ballad’ the duo have released thus far is quickly disabused as lyrically they get to the matter in hand from the get go.
Deux Furieuses are rapidly establishing themselves as one of the few bands about who are prepared to stand up and be counted, and address heavyweight issues such as inequality, misogyny, abuse, religious extremism. Given the post-election issues that are about to divide the country, Deux Furieuses are not just an important band they are vital.

"A masterstroke in lacing anger with meaning and balancing subtlety with fury"
Fem duo deux furieuses hail from London and Glasgow, their debut single ‘Can We Talk About This?‘ produced by Rob Ellis (PJ Harvey) out as a free download on the 13th of October, is a masterstroke in lacing anger with meaning and balancing subtlety with fury. It knocks the idea that you have to be as leaden footed as a two piece like Royal Blood to succeed into unconsciousness…
Ushered in on a tide of percussive drum and guitar twitches riven with menacing half-sung-half whispered stuttering refrains that simmer unrelentingly before exploding with intense mistrust: firing off like missiles into the sternum of the broken promises of lovers and leaders? (‘one rule for them one rule for for us you fucking hypocrite!’). Spiralling in a undeniable tremble in a dystopic underground between the defiance of early PJ Harvey and the firegun agit salutes of Bikini Kill. As a debut offering this is simply superlative.
