Daniel O’Sullivan and Alexander Tucker are long time friends and collaborators. Both artists are veterans of the UK experimental underground: O’Sullivan as a member of Guapo, Ulver, and Aethenor (with Stephen O’Malley), and Tucker with imbogodom and as an eclectic solo artist.

Emerging as Grumbling Fur in 2011, the pair have crafted a series of critically acclaimed modern psychedelic avant-pop albums from 2011’s ‘Furrier’ to ‘Glynnaestra’ (2013) and ‘Preternaturals’ (2014) to 2016’s ‘Furfour’.

Grumbling Fur’s world is an innovative one, where every sound contains its own unique story, and is driven by the overarching melody and harmony. O’Sullivan and Tucker write pop songs for the sophisticated palate.

As their history attests, this is a group unbound from the restrictions of traditionalism and unafraid to shed the pretence of pure abstraction. There’s a tradition of subterranean Englishness at play, harking back to This Heat’s Deceit and Eno’s Another Green World.
