Breakfast in Fur EP
I'm not going to lie to you guys: The album art is a better indicator of Breakfast in Fur than anything I can write! Playful and folksy sure, but the little girl's facial expression is a hint at just how off-putting this EP can be. My first thought was that they are emotionally reminiscent of Headless Horseman, but with a drastically different sound. Both artists feature chilly vocals, but Headless Horseman back it up with glitch-pop, while Breakfast in Fur choose folk instead. Ultra-creepy falsetto aside, the real feat Breakfast in Fur accomplish is their ability to throw Goose Bump inducing subtleties into songs that would be wholly optimistic on paper.
