Our Day Will Come is the latest call to arms single from a personal favourite band of mine, Deux Furieuses. It’s another exciting release from their forthcoming album ‘Songs from Planet Earth’ which comes out in just a few days. With each single they have released, the more they have whetted my appetite to hear this new album.
Each single they have released, has been filled with rock n roll rawness and emotion. The songs have each touched upon important issues to the band, and expressed with passion. Our Day Will Come continues this trend with power and hope, as the duo look to a future where their anger and fury is channelled into positive action in future generations.
The band said about the song, ““Our Day Will Come” was written during the COVID-19 pandemic at a time when we couldn’t sing out loud for fear of aerosol transmission. As Brexit Britain mourns its own past, the Conservatives release protected land to be savaged for property development, as women in Iran take a dangerous stand for their rights against morality police and as the music business continues to offer self-perpetuating opportunities to the boys with guitars, it sometimes feels like our causes will outlive us. “Our Day Will Come” says: take our rebel song, take our spirit and fight the good fight when we are no longer here… In the video, we brandish head scarves in solidarity with the inspiring young Iranian women so courageously protesting for change despite the risk to their lives.”
The video that goes with the song is simple but effective. I love them waving the head scarves. I also love the choice of black and white, which towards the end starts interspersing with colour, as they express their passion and anger by bashing their instruments.
I’m so excited to hear what else Deux Furieuses have in store for us with their new album, and will be at their album launch at The Lexington on the 18th November.
Our Day Will Come is out now and Songs from Planet Earth is out on 11th November via Xtra Mile Recordings.

23 – Bournemouth Old Fire Station
24 – MIlton Keynes Craufurd Arms
25 – Huddersfield The Parish
