Album review: Tracks of Wire – deux furieuses

14022085_1369026919778645_7208457087890048699_nI found out about “deux furieuses” on Twitter today and was curious enough to stream their album. I’m glad I did! “Tracks of Wire” is an amazing debut album.

As the name of the band suggests, there is a lot of anger and frustration that is being expressed in the lyrics of these songs. If you like rock, punk, alternative music that has something to say, you will love it. My favourite type of music, no matter the genre, contains some kind of social commentary and substance. This album has it all. Not only does it have thought-provoking and powerful lyrics, but the music is edgy, catchy, and addictive. The vocals are perfection.

“Tracks of Wire” is a very creative collection of songs. Every song is brilliant. Some of the music borders on progressive or experimental music. It’s not often you come across a debut album that is this good. This is a work of art and it’s unique. It’s like every song has been constructed around an idea, and each song has its own style: some are heavy, some are more melodic, but they all come together to make up different parts of what is a fantastic album. I found myself liking each song more than the one before and then listening to the whole album again and falling in love with it all over again.

Track listing:

  1. Can We Talk About This?
  2. Now You’re Gonna Listen
  3. Are We Sexy Enough?
  4. Get Nowhere
  5. Dream for Change
  6. Kill Us
  7. The Party of Shaitaan
  8. Philistines
  9. Out of My System
  10. I Want My Life Back
  11. Time to Mourn
  12. From Fear to Fury

  2. First discovered this band live, I was looking for backing tapes as I didn’t think two musicians could create such a powerful wall of sound. I was wrong, the girls deliver real depth of quality throughout the whole set. Phenomenal album

    • I also wondered about that. With only 2 of them, it’s amazing that they manage to produce such awesome music – especially in a live setting. They’re very talented. Hoping to catch them live one day πŸ™‚
