All We Need is Sanc­tu­ary is the new sin­gle by Lon­don-based duo Deux Furieuses just released. Deux Furieuses com­pris­es Scot­tish vocal­ist and gui­tarist Ros Cair­ney and drum­mer Vas Antoniadou. 

The duo have carved out a name for them­selves with their polit­i­cal­ly charged mate­r­i­al and uncom­pro­mis­ing atti­tude but All We Need is Sanc­tu­ary has a wist­ful, intro­spec­tive and I would go so far as to say slight­ly folk-tinged vibe, which only adds to the song’s pow­er and abil­i­ty to get its mes­sage across. Rather than adopt­ing shouty “I’m angry” vocals, Ros Cair­ney pri­ori­tis­es clar­i­ty, in order for the lyrics to be under­stood, her mea­sured voice ris­ing above the mael­strom of instrumentation. 

Deux Furieuses explain the theme of the song thus: ‘All We Need Is Sanc­tu­ary’ is our SOS from this scorched Plan­et Earth. It describes a jour­ney from the pan­dem­ic pres­sure of an over­crowd­ed city to an old world of trees, springs, paths and stars. An SOS from scram­bled minds in search of the san­i­ty of sanc­tu­ary, as the sanc­tu­ary itself is under threat of extinction.” 

The duo’s third full-length album called Songs from Plan­et Earth is out on 11th Novem­ber. It is the band’s sec­ond with Xtra Mile Record­ings and was writ­ten over the course of the last two tur­bu­lent years. Record­ed in Octo­ber 2021 at Grange Farm Stu­dio, the album was self-pro­duced by the band. A spe­cial guest appear­ance comes from Deb Googe (My Bloody Valen­tine), who played bass on pre­vi­ous sin­gle Bring Down The Gov­ern­ment.
