The Fury Weekend project was created when Belarus-based Ars Nikonov chose to combine his love of classic rock, electronic music, and ‘80s culture into a forward thinking music venture. The result is a dystopian synthwave sound that blends bright synth melodies and gritty guitar work into a singular music vision of the future.
The uniqueness of Fury Weekend should come as no surprise given the artist’s background, which involves ambitious projects ranging from industrial to post-rock. Diversant: 13, Cold in May, Martian Love, Seanine, and Tribal A.D. are some of the many names that fill Ars’ creative resume, and each of those has given the creator the experience and tools needed to make an impact with his retrofuturistic synthwave project.
In late 2018, Fury Weekend signed a multi-album deal with FiXT Neon, re-releasing his first three EPs and full-length album while preparing for a second full-length, Escape from Neon City. 2019 marked a breakout year for Fury Weekend as new singles like “Thousand Lights” featuring Megan McDufffee and the Scandroid collaboration on “Euphoria” were immediate hits, propelling Fury Weekend over 100,000 monthly listeners on Spotify. The highly anticipated full album, Escape from Neon City, is scheduled for release in the fall of 2019 through FiXT Neon.
