Handsome Furs are an indie rock band which formed in 2005 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The band consists of Dan Boeckner (vocals, guitar) and his wife, Alexei Perry (keyboards, vocals). Boeckner is also a member of the bands Wolf Parade and Atlas Strategic. Recorded at Wolf Parade’s studio, Mount Zoomer, in the heart of December, Plague Park is their debut. It is a record of melancholic tendency and heartfelt desire; a stripped down symphony relegated between city and country, and made for ears of either side. Since then, the band has released two more albums, "Face Control” and “Sound Kapital”, the latter of which was released in June.
