Listen to the Dublin-based artist's latest album, Recurring Dream, below.
Conor Furlong has released his new album, Recurring Dream.
Written, arranged, performed, and produced by Furlong himself, the album is inspired by what he calls "the last golden period of popular music."
This period of music from 1991 to 1995 includes albums like Nirvana's Nevermind and In Utero, R.E.M.'s Out Of Time and Automatic For The People, and The Smashing Pumpkins' Gish, Siamese Dream, and Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness. These are the records that Furlong says he has "played over and over again."
"This album is for the lonely, awkward, insecure teenagers out there who look at the world, don't understand it, don't feel like they fit in, and for whom processed 808 beats and auto-tune isn't going to help," he says.
"And it's for 20 something, 30 somethings, 40 somethings, 50 somethings, 60 somethings who still feel like that awkward teenager at heart, and who really just want to go [to] their bedrooms, put on headphones, turn it up, and drift away."
In July, Hot Press premiered the music video for 'Teenage Fantasies,' the first single released ahead of Recurring Dream.
