HANDSOME FURS

“This band is completely based, aesthetically and otherwise, on travelling, on absorbing places and regurgitating them in music,” says Dan Boeckner(OF WOLF PARADE) over a screwdriver. His wife, Alexei Perry, also sipping on a screwdriver, interjects, “We both secretly want to be journalists.” And her husband concurs, “Secretly, I want to be a foreign correspondent. Handsome Furs is compact and transportable; it allows us to travel to places a lot of fully-manned rock bands with a drum kit never make it to. And bring them to others, whether anyone notices or not. We believe good music helps you broaden your perspective without ramming things ham-fistedly down your throat.”

“We have X amount of commercial potential. It’s not a lot, but enough to sustain two lives as much as two minimum wage jobs would or even more. So we can afford to make decisions like using the proceeds from an L.A. show to go to Serbia. If you look at it from a financial point of view, we do stupid, stupid tours. Then again, we’re not financially-minded. We’d rather extend ourselves as far as we can to absorb the world, life and experience.”
