about

TRACKS OF WIRE is the debut album from Anglo/ Scottish agit punk duo deux furieuses and the result of an intensive ten day residential
session at Bryn Derwen studio, Wales with producer Rob Ellis
(PJ Harvey).

Tracks of Wire topped many Album of the Year lists and was No 9 in Louder Than War's Top 50 Albums of 2016 along with albums from PJ Harvey and Savages.

"Anger masterclass. Their self-released album positively bristles with rage. The fat-free song structures recall Rid of Me, the harshness and austerity of Savages. They are most effective when they slow down on Kill Us which nods to Led Zeppelin's Immigrant Song before locking into a menacing groove. A bold and accomplished debut'
*** Q MAGAZINE (print) Phil Mongredien

"'Tracks of Wire' is this year's 'Nevermind'. Ros Cairney and Vas Antoniadou's aptly named band combines the fury and intensity of early Fugazi with the stylish atmospherics of Savages."
9/10 LOUDER THAN WAR MAGAZINE (print) Gus Ironside

"It is, in modern day terms, a classic album..a soundtrack to life in 2016. What makes a classic album? Perfect songs, emotive lyrics, unforgettable choruses, excellent production, a feeling that the band has contributed blood, sweat and tears to every note, and for Deux Furieuses all those boxes are ticked. It's the sound of standing up and fighting for your rights, it’s the sound of now...Sometimes an album comes along that just grips you by the throat on the first listen and won’t let go, Tracks Of Wire is one such album. It sets the bar very high in terms of modern day punk."
10/10 LOUDER THAN WAR Paul Scott-Bates

'It's massive. These two push the boundaries..two musicians throwing literally everything into their art, creative song writing that never feels tired or dated' 13/13 ROOM THIRTEEN Neil Richardson

'Tracks of Wire is an extraordinary tour de force combining visceral rock power, thunderous tribal rhythms and intelligent, articulate lyrics. In many ways Tracks of Wire follows in the tradition of Nirvana's 'Nevermind' or the Sex Pistols 'Nevermind the Bollocks' - a raging rock record with compelling lyrics that address pivotal contemporary issues. With hooks and atmospherics reminiscent of The Breeders and Savages, this irrepressible debut should find a wide audience for its powerful messages.' SOGO MAGAZINE

'​It’s probably lazy to compare Deux Furieuses to other female punk/post punk acts like Savages, PJ Harvey and even The Joy Formidable but if you could imagine a blend of all of these, you’ll come somewhere close to the sound these two create. One of the best releases of the year. Get it!" PUNKONLINE

"Capturing the mood of frustration, bitterness and righteous fury directed at the political establishment, Tracks of Wire is a call to arms to the disenfranchised that screams “we can and must do better than this” with every pounded drum and howl of distorted guitar." JOYZINE

"Spitting out fury this is a band for rock music obsessed feminists of any gender and generation and/or passionate poetic souls seeking a band to believe in" THE ZINE

"Incisive words, blistering riffs, brooding post-punk energy"

THEY'LL RAPE YOU IF YOU'RE GAY
THEY'LL RAPE YOU IF YOU'RE STRAIGHT
THEY'LL RAPE YOU IF ITS EARLY
THEY'LL RAPE YOU IF ITS LATE
THEY'LL RAPE YOU WITH THE FEAR
OF RULES YOU SHOULDN'T BREAK

I'M LOOKING IN THE MIRROR
I'M LOOKING IN THR PAST
STILL KEEPING FAITH WITH MY LIFE

THIS DREAM IS GONNA KILL US
THIS DREAM IS ALL WE HAVE
STILL WAKING UP TO THIS DREAM
THIS DREAM IS ALL WE HAVE

KEEP BURNING DOWN THE WALLS
THAT PUT US IN OUR PLACE
THEY’RE FIGHTING WIGH MACHINE GUNS
WE’RE FIGHTING WITH OUR HANDS

I WANT MY LIFE BACK


WHILE I WAS HEALING
A REVOLUTION
BECAME A BLOOD BATH

HOW CAN WE STAND BY
WITH ALL AROUND US
THE PRICE OF OUR SILENCE

I WANT MY, I WANT MY
I WANT MY LIFE BACK
I WANT MY, I WANT MY
I WANT MY LIFE BACK
I WANT MY LIFE BACK


SOLDIERS IN HELMETS
DRAG ALONG THE GROUND
WOMEN IN NIQAB
WITH ROCKS IN THEIR HANDS
LET ALL THE WORlD SEE
WHAT WE HAVE BECOME
HOPE TURNS TO BITTERNESS

I WANT MY, I WANT MY
I WANT MY LIFE BACK
I WANT MY, I WANT MY
I WANT MY LIFE BACK

TO BE YOUNG
TO REDISCOVER
THE TRUTH IN SIMPLE CHORDS
THAT WAS VERY HEAVEN
