In time for the General Election, Deux Furieuses share the new video for forthcoming single ‘Silenced By The Roar’. Aptly described by Clash as: “fusing post-punk to Riot Grrrl, the band’s politicised approach takes a swipe at the establishment, at the crushing of dissent across the land.” The track is the Deux Furieuses’ roar of defiance, as they expand:

Deux Furieuses are London duo Ros Cairney (guitar and vocals) and Vas Antoniadou (drums and vocals). Their sound is fuelled by, and a rallying cry against, 21 Century hypocrisy, pro-democracy uprisings, fundamentalism and extremism, the denial of freedom of expression and rights for women. Described by Everett True (Collapse Board) as “alreadysurpassingSavagesintermsofpuremenace”, Deux Furieuses are a band reinventing the Riot Grrrl scene, writing political songs delivered with an impassioned raw exuberance that has seen them compared to PJ Harvey, but with a post-punk sound.
‘Silence By The Roar’ follows Deux Furieues debut album ‘Tracks of Wire’ (May, 2017) which Q Magazine described as “aboldandaccomplishedalbum”, with Louder Than War giving it their ‘classic album’ rating of 10/10.
Following Deux Furieuses show at Frank Turner ‘Lost Evenings’ festival, The Roundhouse, London, the duo are set to headline The Islington, London on 13 June.
