Dark and emotive, Eli & Fur’s latest single, ‘Carbon,’ arrives just ahead of the London-based duo’s first studio album, “Found In The Wild,” due June 25. Comprised of long-time friends Eliza Noble and Jennifer Skillman, Eli & Fur has graced the stage at world-renowned festivals, ranging from Coachella to Tomorrowland. And yet, the deep house duo’s debut LP still has yet to materialize. Released via Anjunadeep, ‘Carbon’ arrives on the heels of ‘Come Back Around’ and ‘Wild Skies,’ all of which are to be featured on the final tracklist of “Found In The Wild.” Driven by a thick bassline, ‘Carbon’s’ infectious dance progression has been in the vault since before the pandemic. The duo explained,
“This track existed before the pandemic. The song was there already, as it was written in LA the previous year. A lot of our tracks just start with us in the studio playing chords and coming up with a traditional song structure: verse, bridge, chorus. We often pull some of that away and let the production speak for the non-vocal parts, but we felt this one needed to be fully fleshed out. We added that darkness in the production—the arp, the crunchy bass—and it gave it another level of emotion. It’s deep, but it’s hooky in the vocal, and we like to try and get that balance with all of our tracks.”
Eli & Fur’s full-length album is due June 25, available for pre-order on limited-edition teal vinyl or cassette via the Anjuna Music Store. Having been producing together since they were teenagers, Noble and Skillman’s debut project on Anjunadeep is sure to impress. For now, stream ‘Carbon’ below.
