Feminist warriors DEUX FURIEUSES are gearing up to unleash their second LP, entitled
MY WAR IS YOUR WAR after scoring one of the best debut albums of 2016 with their first-class longplayer Tracks Of Wire. Last month they released the loud and rough lead single 
A Year Of Rage. And now here’s another solid slam…

CIVILIANS is a track inspired by “a robot politician on TV denying what was clearly true”. It’s
a tense, slow-burning eruption. It’s a dark-edged sockdolager. It’s another sonic proof of this committed duo’s dynamic and crystal clear expressiveness. Catch their vigorous drift here…

DEUX FURIEUSES Are Back With A New Fiery Slam – Here’s ‘YEAR OF RAGE’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

3 July 2019

(photo/artwork Dan Donovan)

After releasing one of the best debut albums of 2016 with their barbed powerhouse outburst ‘Tracks Of Wire’, politically outspoken and socially committed London’s brisk
rock duo deux feurieuses is back with the lead single of their new upcoming LP. As we
all know this planet has become an entirely different place to live in these past few years,
a disastrous divided one where egoism, racism, sexism and inequality reign again thanks to obsessive and narcissistic right-wing world leaders preaching damaging hate and hazardous nationalism.

Enough reasons for a ‘YEAR OF RAGE‘. Open your windows and doors,
turn up the decibels and play this new thumping sonic manifesto LOUD…

DEUX FURIEUSES – Back With Crystal Clear Anti-Establishment Single ‘SILENCED BY THE ROAR’…

‘Silenced By The Roar’ by DEUX FURIEUSES

After last year’s excellent and highly praised powerhouse debut album TRACKS OF WIRE
– one of the best LP’s on my 2016 list – outspoken and socially caring London-based duo DEUX FURIEUSES is back with brand new digital single SILENCED BY THE ROAR. The two vital savages, Ros Cairney (guitar, vocals) and Vas Antoniadou (drums, vocals), clarify the fury behind the fresh, cutting post-Brexit track : “it is about the ascendancy of the English ‘roar’, how we feel increasingly silenced by the government’s ‘Crush the saboteurs’ mentality and let down by ‘piss poor politicians’ who are unable to articulate a response to the failures of democracy and the big issues of our times. The song ends with a rallying cry of intent
influenced by protests we have been part of outside Downing Street

This gloriously noisy and sharply observant tandem realize perfectly that our daily life
is affected by politics, that politics dominate society 24/7. And as dangerous and idiotic politicians rule this troubled world today DEUX FURIEUSES step up – again – and use
their vivacious voice and sonic vehemence to ventilate their justified critical anger and social concern. This is an important band. This is a crystal clear frustration stroke…

If you dance with the devil
You’re gonna get burned
Are you ready for the sound
Of tables being turned?
Enemies of the people
Stand up to hate
Citizens of nowhere
Die at the gate
We’re all just sleepwalking into hell

England has roared
Silence the hope
Red lines are crossed
Give me the rope
We’re all just sleepwalking into hell
Give me some hope
We can break the spell
Just say the word
And we’re hypnotised
This world’s a mess
And we’re paralysed

Trick of the light
Twist of the tongue
Looks like the truth
Is not for everyone

We will not be silenced
We will not be silenced

We’re all just sleepwalking into hell
Give me some hope
We can break the spell
Just say the word
And we’re hypnotised
This world’s a mess
And we’re paralysed

We will not be silenced
By history repeating
We will not be silenced
By racist propaganda
We will not be silenced
By piss poor politicians
The will of the people
Is not what I believe in

DEUX FURIEUSES – New Single In Aid Of ‘Phone Credit For Refugees’…

Music that thrills us in a way we want to scream out loud…


13 December 2016


British socially dedicated post punk duo DEUX FURIEUSES walk it like they talk it. After contributing one of their songs to a compilation album in aid of HOPE not hate – a charitable trust challenging Hate and trying to build communities of Hope in the UK –    Vas and Ros will release their brand new single TIME TO MOURN/FROM FEAR TO FURY on 20th January to support grass roots charity organisation Phone Credit For Refugees. Time To Mourn and  From Fear To Fury are actually the last two tracks – a compelling unity   of profound emotions – on their splendid debut album Tracks Of Wire dealing with “the journey of refugees but also their own life’s journey as females and musicians in a society that doesn’t value either.” The single is accompanied by a video directed by Dan Donovan which tells the story of a young man forced to flee his country. Here’s daily reality…

“We chose Phone Credit for Refugees after meeting our Labour MP Stella Creasy at a ‘Walthamstow feminist Bootcamp’ and she put us in touch with voluntary aid workers who
knew the group. Their direct aid of phone top ups for refugees worked well with our video’s central theme of mobile phone as a lifeline. This is our way of combatting the rise of the so called Alt-right!”
explained the two committed savages in a press message. All proceeds from the single will go to phone top ups for refugees & displaced people desperate to connect with their families and to access the latest information on open borders and asylum rights.

Time To Mourn/From Fear To Fury is available for pre-order here on Bandcamp

DEUX FURIEUSES – New Track For #MoreInCommon Charity Album…


‘This Is A Red Line’ by DEUX FURIEUSES


After launching their explosive and highly praised debut album Tracks Of Wire last May powerful duo DEUX FURIEUSES are back with a new spirited slam. THIS IS A RED LINE
is an unreleased song recorded during their album sessions with producer Rob Ellis. The band explains what the track’s story is all about: “It was written about the realisation that
the Egyptian girl in the iconic Girl In The Blue Bra witness video still, who was so brutally uncovered, kicked and beaten by security forces, was in fact just like us in her jeans and trainers. No matter what we are wearing or not wearing, underneath we have, to quote Jo
Cox, “so much more in common than that which divides us.”
. Again, Ros and Vas, ventilate their rage about social injustices with a robust stroke. Loud and clear, as we know them…

The track is the band’s contribution to a splendid and inspiring project. #MoreInCommon HOPE not hate is an 88 (!) track compilation album, with many artists involved, in aid of HOPE not hate, a highly commendable charity trust for a modern, inclusive Britain. It will be out on 28th October with pre-order facility (10 tracks to start with) here on Bandcamp. The concept behind that album is to show that however diverse the artists included are musically they all share a common goal which is one for peace and tolerance. Every penny raised goes towards HnH. Small expense for a great cause with great music in return. My copy is reserved.
