fu is a two piece experimental band hailing from Shah Alam formed by Adrie (guitar/effects) and Fakhri (drum/samplers). They’ve been around quite recently but looking at their speedy move, we feel that there’s something about their music worth pinning. Successfully released their demo in March under label Touchanddie records, fu’s launch party was accompanied with performances from Paint The Sky Red (SG), Deepset and Trifecta.
The adequate experimental lay up of post rock and ambient sound bares everything about what fu intends to bring. Their 4-track wishful demo is like a journey of nostalgic experience, deepen with the space of melodies as a soundtrack to your roaming thoughts – with similar sound elements from Explosions In The Sky, MONO and Toe which serve as fu’s major musical influences.
Talking about progress, they have emitted some new songs during their release party like ‘The Flower Beneath Her Feet’ and ‘I Will Never Forget The Look On Her Face’ but still have yet to make a proper recording. Perhaps we could expect that from their upcoming artistic output sometime soon maybe?
Meanwhile, have a listen to their demo:
