"The Crystal Furs: "Too Kind To Be Cruel""

A warming breeze in newly-green treetops, it piques memories while it calms. “Too Kind To Be Cruel” is the gently-fluttering, literate and lovable brand-new single from Portland, Oregon’s The Crystal Furs. The band’s Kara Buchanan describes the track as

“having a bigger, layered sound than anything we’ve done before — wider stereo fields, instruments like electric piano and vibraphone and sleigh bells, multi-tracked vocals, just really trying to take our songwriting up to a new level. It takes inspiration from twee pop, Pacific Northwest indie rock and The Beach Boys.”

You can download the track right now by visiting the band’s Bandcamp page. - The Autumn Roses

"The Crystal Furs – Too Kind To Be Cruel"

It’s over a year since we last heard from Portland’s The Crystal Furs. Well they are back with the new single Too Kind To Be Cruel which showcases their new Pacific Northwest sound. They write that ” it’s the Crystal Furs, new and improved, rebooted and reborn.”. As for the single itself it’s a well crafted, melodic indiepop track and is backed with a mono version of the same song. You can get it from here. - Records I Like

"New Music Blast: 5 Tracks That Demand Attention"

Portland’s The Crystal Furs’ new single ‘Too Kind To Be Cruel‘ is like a beacon of light in this dark world. The single is a perfectly constructed 3 minutes of hooky jangle-pop that harkens to the sweetness of 90s darlings like Madder Rose and The Sundays. It follows their two previous LPs, the 2016 debut, and last years ‘Pseudosweet‘. They promise two EPs will follow this year. - 50ThirdAndThird

"Beat The Delete #0044 (Weekly New Music Recommendations)"

After moving across the U.S. to the Pacific North-West, The Crystal Furs have ended their musical impasse to bring us this luscious slice of jangly, indie pop that stops just short of sophisti-pop, but never short of their usual brilliance…this is the first flyer single of two EP’s they will be releasing in 2020. - JanglePopHub
