Biography

These Furrows are a teenage 4 piece from Leicester. Formed in December 2008 their progress has been rapid with them securing a number of enviable support slots with Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Tubelord and The Zutons.

But the scene which bore them by no means hinders them, and they are fully immersed in becoming the best they can be without being held back by their surroundings: -

Their debut EP “Masks” was released on 10th October 2009 by Robot Needs Home Records to great acclaim, with airplay and support from Huw Stephens at Radio 1, Huey Morgan at 6 Music, and the now ever more influential blogging community.

‘Without Manner’ – the band’s first single proper – was released in August 2010 to a flurry of good reviews, with the band gaining airplay from Jon Kennedy on XFM, to 6 music
