Nashville might not be the place you’d expect a duo like Future Unlimited to start pulling from the 1980s’ lasting influence, looking to (appropriately) futuristic inspirations, and compiling their impeccably glossy no-wave synthpop, but indeed, that’s where it all began for the short set of songs that’s now getting the band noticed. For all the focus on otherworldly drones, opaque, planar ‘80s synths, and mechanical bass throbs lately, Future Unlimited are promising because they’ve found a way to incorporate those familiar elements into something new. You can stream two fantastic tracks from them, “When It Calls” and “Golden” – we prefer the former, which hockets between industrial post-punk influence and that of Cut Copy-esque dance pop impressively fluidly. Check out both tracks below; hit the “Download” button for the mp3s.
