Perfectly riding between jangling '80s indie, '60s girl group bittersweet harmonies, catchy pop melodies, and personal/political punk lyricism.

Portland, US-based three-piece The Crystal Furs have made their most honest and honed album yet in Beautiful and True.

Technically their third long player the band see this as a second debut, coming as their first album 'out and living as our real selves'.

Getting a limited release on CD and digital through SubJangle in 2020 the album has been remastered and is coming to vinyl for the first time through Reckless Yes in 2021.

Writing melodic, textured songs about anxiety, architecture, lesbians, and queer feels The Crystal Furs' Beautiful and True is loud music for quiet hearts.

Had The Crystal Furs been around in the late 80s - early 90s there is a possibility they would have been signed to Sarah Records, home of OG jangle pop bands like The Field Mice and Sea Urchins.

Then again with their sunny, bright melodies, they might have found themselves riding the charts alongside The Bangles.
