Futuretape release sophomore single
Electro-pop duo Futuretape today release their second single ‘Fake Fun’, a disco and PC music tinged testimony to the awkwardness of social and friendship hierarchies in school-type environments – listen to the song here.
Speaking about the new song, Futuretape says:
“The song is from the point of view of the class loners and losers who see through phoney friendships and cliques. It’s inspired by our own experience, we realised we’ve been dealing with the same issues and dynamics through our education (in different countries) right up until we met at university. We wrote this song in our final year about how even then, we still felt like the losers, at the back of the class. This time though, we’re standing out by not blending in.”
Made up of queer singer-songwriter-producer Charley and Italian singer-songwriter Nicole, Futuretape are part of a new wave of artists creating unashamed pop music for a digital age (Foxgluvv, GIRLI, LIZ) tackling themes such as isolation, connectivity, online relationships and identity, all framed by clean pop productions.
Part of a trilogy that explores “loser status”, ‘Fake Fun’ is a bold follow-up from their debut single ‘Look At Me Now’ which gay times described as a “sparkly pop banger ↖︎”.
