I Am The Dustbowl / Bone Man - Double A-Side
Welcome to the theatre of Furta Sacra. A London band who emerged from the rubble in 2010, they came together to create this new musical creature.
Through scintillating and foundation-shuddering live performances, Furta Sacra deliver moments of both melancholy beauty and sonic chaos with songs 'I am the Dustbowl' and 'Bone Man' from the double A-side single.
With soaring guitars, militant drums, thundering bass and exquisitely dark vocals, audiences are left serenaded and shocked.
The 7th of May see's The Davenport Collection playing host to the single release of Furta Sacra. Featuring the two fantastic songs 'I Am The Dustbowl & Bone Man'. The launch of the double A-side shall be taken place at The Monarch (Camden) on the same day as the release.
Following 2012's free compilation album 'The Scrapbook', The Davenport Collection presents; The Gathering. Featuring some of our favoured artists, the album shall be available to download free from a number sites.
