Deux Furieuses refuse to compromise on their stirring brand of articulate post punk that tackles issues of injustice with an unflinching attitude and meticulous musicianship, All We Need Is Sanctuary is an arms open wide plea for a world whose occupants are all too ready to watch it burn. As poised as it is punchy, the track pits ringing guitars against big drums with shimmering percussion and imploring vocals as the song contrasts the insanity of city existence during the pandemic lockdown with the sanity of a life in nature.

‘All We Need Is Sanctuary’ is our SOS from this scorched Planet Earth. It describes a journey from the pandemic pressure of an overcrowded city to an old world of trees, springs, paths and stars. An SOS from scrambled minds in search of the sanity of sanctuary, as the sanctuary itself is under threat of extinction.” 

All We Need Is Sanctuary follows Know The Score and Bring Down The Government as strident samplers of what to expect from Deux Furieuses third full-length album, Songs From Planet Earth. Landing on the 11th November, the album is the band’s second with Xtra Mile Recordings and was written over the course of the last two turbulent years. Touching on the maelstrom of socio-political issues that continue to dominate the UK, from widespread inequality and the ongoing outcomes of the pandemic to environmental issues and gender politics, the album takes unflinching aim at a government completely incompetent to deal with them.

The duo are now preparing to take Songs From Planet Earth to the masses. With a slot at London’s Loud Women Festival lined up for September, Deux Furieuses will also be hitting the road with Brix Smith in October, playing both with and in support of the artist, before embarking on a UK tour with Skinny Lister throughout November.
