Our figurative wax turned lyrical when positively chilling Copenhagen pop outfit Furns unfurled Love Aches earlier on in the year, and we’re to be in no way less complimentary this time around either. So complementary is the potent vocal of Monika Faludi to the softened clacks and splashes of vibrant melody courtesy of Mathias Dahl Andreasen that it’s nigh on impossible not to be helplessly swept away by their tender, heartfelt balladry: slow and sultry is their default mode, and one over which they’ve a masterful command and lyrically, Faludi suitably articulates this sense of imperious dominance on the pairing’s latest, Power. “You got a power over me/ Like Moses had the power over sea” she trills in a delicate porcelain warble easily amiable enough for FM frequencies, prior to promising herself to a reluctant other forevermore. A total knockout, and one he’d be foolish not to fall for with an utmost unreservedness.
