The Psychedelic Furs – “Evergreen”

Matthew Reeves

Last year, the Psychedelic Furs, the ace brooders who ruled modern-rock radio in the late ’80s, returned with Made Of Rain, their first new album since 1991. It appears that they’re not done yet. This morning, with the band’s long-delayed US tour finally set to start in a couple of weeks, the Furs have come out with a new stand-alone song called “Evergreen.”

The Furs haven’t really shared any information on “Evergreen,” though it could’ve easily come from the Made Of Rain sessions. It’s an icy, sparse new wave song that doesn’t skimp on the gothic grandeur that this band always brings. Frontman Richard Butler always sounds at least a little like David Bowie, but on this one, he really sounds like David Bowie. Below, hear the song and check out the band’s upcoming tour dates.
