San Francisco’s The New Up have just revealed a new track – Future is Now, taken from their as yet untitled (at least as far as we know) album, which is out in November. The band have a real DIY spirit, building their own studio to record in and recording everything between there and a barn in a seaside town.
Future is Now has something of the beach house about it, and is this echoey sun soaked slice of indie rock right from the off. Built on this throbbing bass figure and insistent one-note guitar line, its sugared with these rather lovely harmonies, backing vocals and this gorgeous woozy melody. Behind all that though, there’s a darker message – Careful what you wish for, there’s no turning back.
Right now here at backseat mafia, we wish to hear a lot more of The New Up.
