English electronic duo Futurecop! have always amazed me by creating nostalgic music that makes me yearn for memories that I’ve never experienced. “Eyes“, featuring Toronto indie-pop artist Lyon, is an ambrosial hymn of romance meant for summer stargazing.
“Eyes” is a dropping of much of the Casio-synth schtick that made their past releases so identifiable, but the fresher loops and piano riffs keep with their trademark rhythmic melody. The nostalgia hasn’t gone anywhere – it’s just moved to a different season.
Futurecop!‘s next release, “Fairytales of Summer Shoegazers“, will be out this summer, just in time to be the soundtrack to memories that actually exist.
