The name French Style Furs may not sound completely familiar to you yet, but this new trio is made up of some recognizable names. Nathan Willett and Matt Maust of Cold War Kids have teamed up with Nathan Warkentin of We Barbarians after years of friendship and musical camaraderie to create French Style Furs.
Maust and Warkentin began recording in 2013, and were joined by Willett who was inspired to use the writings of poet Thomas Merton as the lyrical base for their new musical endeavor. The following collaboration is a mixing of talents that’s greater than the sum of its parts.
Having already premiered three tracks from their LP Is Exotic Bait (out July 8th via Frenchkiss) and announced their June residency at The Satellite in Los Angeles, we’re thrilled to premiere the lyric video for “Solitary Life” exclusively on FILTER this morning. Check it out above!
