"All Of Us Flames is not a collection of diary entries or part of a memoir in progress. Personal it may be, but the inclusivity of that title betrays Furman’s intent: these are songs of connection and (un)belonging for – as “Come Close” has it – “the broken hearted”, “the desperate ones” and the “freak[s] with no place to hide”. A revitalised rock’n’roll soundtrack for a push towards the brightening of the light." - UNCUT
“Fiery, full throttle, and bound by atmospheric connections, [Furman] draws us in through streams of consciousness, gentleness, mosh-worthy riffs, and an elegant desecration of the world’s decided stage.” — Bust
A singer, songwriter, and author whose incendiary music has soundtracked all three seasons of the Netflix show Sex Education, Ezra Furman has for years woven together stories of queer discontent and unlikely, fragile intimacies. Her new album ‘All of Us Flames’ widens that focus to a communal scope, painting transformative connections among people who unsettle the stories power tells to sustain itself.
Produced by John Congleton in L.A., ‘All of Us Flames’ unleashes Furman's songwriting in an open, vivid sound world whose boldness heightens the music's urgency. The record arrives as the third instalment in a trilogy of albums, beginning with 2018's Springsteen-inflected road saga Transangelic Exodus and continuing with the punk rock fury of 2019's Twelve Nudes.
"This is a first person plural album," Furman says. "It's a queer album for the stage of life when you start to understand that you are not a lone wolf, but depend on finding your family, your people, how you work as part of a larger whole. I wanted to make songs for use by threatened communities, and particularly the ones I belong to: trans people and Jews."
