The San Diego-based quintet Future You was founded in late 2010 by Tony Felix. Each member of Future You is a multi-instrumentalist and their music often blends elements of indie rock, dream pop, and psych folk. Melodic atmospheric instrumentation, and layered rhythms are apparent throughout the debut album “meant to be”. Fans of bands like Grizzly Bear, Sigur Rós, Fleet Foxes, Radiohead will be happy to listen to what this band has to offer. Listening to “Meant to be” is tranquil and at times quite peaceful or melancholy. It contains different shades of emotions that are apparent throughout the album.
The opener “Close to Shore” starts with a distant piano and is quickly followed by a sustained lead guitar, ethereal vocals and consistent bass lines. The song’s highpoint comes at its most subdued when the singer repeats the phrase "settle down". A great song entitled “way home” hits the money with a melodic combination of instruments that tantalize the senses. As 16th notes are scraped on the electric guitar the bass provides a subtle backdrop. The closing number “one and only one” is a hazy atmospheric dream floating amongst the clouds as instruments float in and out of existence. Overall, this album contains a number of gems that is worth your time to check out. Matter of fact, you can listen to a song below
