Our Debut Album - Now Available
The Crystal Furs is an indiepop band based in Fort Worth, Texas. We write melodic guitar-and-organ-based pop tunes. Our musical inspiration comes from a variety of sources – the jangly indie pop sounds of ’90s bands like Heavenly and Velocity Girl, the indie pop and rock of the Pacific Northwest, the psych-pop of the Elephant 6 Collective, and the innovative multi-layered music of Brian Wilson.
The Crystal Furs is made up of Amanda Hand (guitar, vocals), Kevin Buchanan (keys, vocals), and Tanner Brown (drums). After working together in a previous band, Amanda and Kevin began recording as a duo in late 2015 under our original name, "Pentacon Six," to create the kind of melodic, memorable pop songs they've always gravitated toward. Tanner joined in 2016 as the band prepared for live performances and the recording of its first full-length album. In May 2016, we renamed ourselves "The Crystal Furs" to reflect the new group dynamic and the growth in our musical style.
