Ezra Furman and the Harpoons

Falling for Ezra Furman & The Harpoons started with the super 8 video-aesthetics of the enthusiastic dylanesk song Take Off Your Sunglasses But Bob Dylan is not the only reference for Ezra’s stirring vocals and The Harpoons barnstorming play. Traces from The Beatles, Lou Reed and a bit of the Daniel Johnston-spirit („let’s just do Walking The Cow first“) are interspersed throughout their oeuvre – not at all in an annoying rip-off way, but in an original and mind-expanding one. Anyway, when we meet Ezra, Job, Adam and Andrew on the day off after their well-loved show at the fm4-fest at Café Europa, they are in a good mood. After the Daniel Johnston-cover, they head for their own „Weak Knees“ and then come up with a third song, because „we don’t have much to do today“ as Ezra explains, „maybe you do…“. We definitely don’t have anything better to do than hanging out with this enjoyable band from NYC for a cup of coffee on a Sunday afternoon and listen to their heart-warming performance. Their last song „Falling Apart“ is from The Sleeptalkers, that is the guitarist Andrew’s other band project.
