Ezra Furman releases a video for “Thermometer,” a track from her “potent, impatient record” (Bandcamp) Twelve Nudes, released last month via Bella Union, ahead of her UK tour in November. Throughout “Thermometer”, Furman’s vocals are defiant and ragged, matched by loud, lively instrumentation. The accompanying video shows Furman in various settings – shaving her legs, riding her bike across town, reading a book – with a hazy, old-school filter.
“‘Thermometer’ was inspired by touring with the inimitable So So Glos back in 2014, wondering if I could write anthems like theirs,” says Furman. “It’s called ‘Thermometer’ because as artists it’s our job to check the temperature of the surrounding culture and try to respond with the appropriate musical medicine. Right now we’re all running so hot the mercury is breaking the glass.”
