What happens after you go viral? A new documentary series, Brooklyn Backstories, goes inside the world of Mike Furey and how he partnered up with Tom Napack to create Dangerous Muse. The 28-minute video originally produced for the Brooklyn Cable Network recaps the recent evolution and successes of the independent electronic rock project, which first caught everyone's attention with "The Rejection" in 2005. Since then, Furey and the project have been ones to watch as they raced up the charts with the Bloodshy & Avant-produced "I Want It All" and "I Can't Help It."
"I saw it as a great opportunity to share more of myself and my project than ever before," Furey told EQ Music. "Doing this piece enables me to open up and make an intimate connection, face-to-face, with listeners everywhere. It also gives me a chance to bring some of my collaborators who mean so much to me and to my process to the forefront. It is important to me professionally as it clarifies the evolution of Dangerous Muse--from first inception to current configuration--and demonstrates the breadth of my musical performance style--from acoustic to electronic-rock, studio to stage. I feel I owe this insight into my life and I am grateful to have been given the opportunity."
The new documentary, directed by Tiffany Pham, permiered on EQ Music and is now available in full on YouTube. Watch below:
