EZRA FURMAN – ” All Of Us Flames “

Posted: May 12, 2022 in MUSIC

A singer, songwriter, and author whose incendiary music has sound-tracked all three seasons of the Netflix show Sex Education, Ezra Furman has for years woven together stories of queer discontent and unlikely, fragile intimacies. Her new album ‘All of Us Flames’ widens that focus to a communal scope, painting transformative connections among people who unsettle the stories power tells to sustain itself.

Ezra says: Big day, my darlings. Our new song “Forever in Sunset” is here, with a beautiful music video accompanying it, AND I finally get to tell you that we are putting out a new album August 26th

Produced by John Congleton in L.A., ‘All of Us Flames’ unleashes Furman’s song writing in an open, vivid sound world whose boldness heightens the music’s urgency. The record arrives as the third instalment in a trilogy of albums, beginning with 2018’s Springsteen-inflected road saga “Transangelic Exodus“and continuing with the punk rock fury of 2019’s “Twelve Nudes”.

This is a first person plural album, Furman says. It’s a queer album for the stage of life when you start to understand that you are not a lone wolf, but depend on finding your family, your people, how you work as part of a larger whole. I wanted to make songs for use by threatened communities, and particularly the ones I belong to: trans people and Jews.
