Edinburgh techno-pop wiz-kids Future Get Down return in all of their glory after a two year hiatus with another vocally driven banger ‘Tears’
Edinburgh techno-pop wiz-kids Future Get Down return in all of their glory after a two year hiatus with another vocally driven banger ‘Tears’. Their first music since they released two EPs in 2018 that won great acclaim, the band further display their pop prowess and make themselves a name to look out for in the near-future.
The first thing that can be immediately pointed out upon a first listen of this track is that it utilizes some incredible unique time signatures as vocalist Oliver Kass says his piece over an effective and impactful drum-beat. As the layers of the track build up, we are met with the synths that give the track its blissful quality and also that which makes it an ear-worm. With a subtle strumming of the guitar acting as a short bridge, the vocals become more and more uninhibited and restricted as Oliver chants the chorus and the listener cannot help but imagine the band addressing a crowd fawning over them. With what seems like an abrupt finish, this emphasizes that the band used the duration of the track to its fullest utilization as they really said everything that they needed to say throughout. Warm and seemingly familiar, this track exists to be heard on a mass scale and, with the adeptness and care to which it was handled, it would be no surprise if that were the case.
This track was produced by Richard Formby, the brainchild between Ghostpoet and Wild Beasts and this further stakes the claim that Future Get Down are destined for great things. With their punchy and stylish delivery, they are a band who will exist in the zeitgeist of great Scottish groups in the future.
