French Style Furs is an indie supergroup centered around Cold War Kids frontman Nathan Willett, bassist Matt Maust, and We Barbarians drummer Nathan Warkentin. The trio named themselves after a Greenpoint storefront that they passed one day during recording sessions in Brooklyn. Their debut Is Exotic Bait has a bit of an unusual influence: while Maust and Warkentin were recording bass and drums tracks in winter 2013, Willett arrived with a book of poems written by 20th century monk Thomas Merton. The trio was so inspired by the work that they decided to use Merton’s poetry as lyrics for the album.
