Band: FUTURE WEST
Who: 4 indie rockers from County Louth, Ireland
conducted by singer/songwriter Francis Watters.
The first 10 LP pre-orders will come with a unique handwritten, numbered lyric booklet by frontman Francis. These will never be printed or written out again so grab one while they’re available. The album features beautiful artwork from David Noonan of Just Mustard and includes a printed lyric insert.
This terrifically impassioned, full-hearted and flamboyant Irishmen have shared 3 tasters off their upcoming full length, so far. Three fervid cuts making you want to hear the other 6 ones too. Now.
References? British bands such as Hard-Fi and The Futureheads popped up in my mind
but also the guitar-fueled swagger of NYC heroes Interpol with Paul Banks‘ melodramatic vocals resonated on my inner stereo. Three bands also driven by an eager temper and affective acuteness. Trust me, you will rave about this quartet after absorbing these
three emo-charged zingers. Holy shit.
– LATE LAST NIGHT –
A fired-up bass-riff eruption with
Interpol guitar lines in the back
– ALL MY SINS –
A burning goosebumps torch
– GIVE YOU MY TIME –
Romanticism in motion
