"Solitary Life" Lyric Video by French Style Furs

unnamedFrench Style Furs is the new side project of Nathan Willett, Matt Maust (both of Cold War Kids), and Nathan Warkentin (of We Barbarians). The former Long Beach denizens became reacquainted in New York and took their namesake from a storefront in Greenpoint. The trio’s debut album, Is Exotic Bait, is due July 8th via Frenchkiss and might have trouble shaking an obvious comparison due to Willett’s passionate vox. But this project actually allows its members liberating expression via ripping riffs or funky jams delivered with a heartland fervor and lyrics taken from the poetry of mystic monk Thomas Merton. Here’s the scrapbook lyric video for their latest single “Solitary Life”:

French Style Furs will continue their June residency at The Satellite tonight along with Avid Dancer, Monte Mar, and Nick Thune.
