‘Futumche! are an alternative rock/post punk band formed in January 2016, Coventry.’ They have recently released their debut album and Fighting Boredom have been listening to it. Read what we thought below.
The songs are fluid and changeable, that’s to say that they start, find a rhythm, discover a more interesting direction, have a bit of a look at it and then decide on something else totally different. There are more ideas in some of these single tracks than in some whole albums I’ve heard this year. It sounds exhausting but is in fact exhilarating and free. I can’t give you a genre because there isn’t one, I can’t give you a band to compare them with, however loosely, because I can’t think of one. They tell little stories, vignettes of life, emotional and almost music hall in their delivery at times. They are weird, strange, odd and wonderful. Listen to the album below and see what you think. I’m sold. Futumche! all the way.
