You Can’t Ignore Me Anymore
Well! This is gutsy! From the strong power chords ond the powerful vocals you know you’re in for a treat.
I like this, because the guitars are good and crunchy, the driving rhythm powers through and this is worthy of a stadium rock anthem badge, you can’t avoid it.
This has 80s written over it, and I love it…
The bridge at about 2:04 is great….
“Can you feel the pressure rising,
Npwhere to turn nowhere to go…”
I like that lyric. It’s deliciously dark. I like deliciously dark.
There’s a guitar solo that Richie Sambora would be proud of I reckon, and for one more hurrah the chorus is played at double time, and just like that it’s over.
What a rollercoaster!!
Future Radio and I have history, I have interviewed them in the past.
According to their spotify:
Brazen rock outfit, Future Radio, formed and released their debut album, Freedom, in 2020. The South Africa-based duo consists of songwriter, vocalist and guitarist, Johnny Future, and guitarist and visual artist Drikus Roets. They cultivate their signature sound by fusing elements of alternative rock, riff rock and punk rock into – what they like to refer to as – future rock. Unlike other rock acts, this forward-thinking band places strong emphasis on visual storytelling. Each song releases as an “episode” complete with visuals and narratives which form part of a season.
Future Radio is currently one of the most exciting rock acts. In only two years, they have amassed many successes. Their strong social media presence of over 17K followers on Instagram alone, is evidence that their vision resonates with listeners and industry tastemakers alike. This exhilarating band commands attention with every turn since establishing themselves as multidimensional artists.
Their high-energy and charged live shows cement their explosive presence and bring life to the stage. The band’s performance style is elevated, beguiling and reflects their contagious passion. Future Radio was selected as one of the 22 acts, out of 300 applicants, to perform at the annual Fête de la Musique Joburg 2022. With no sign of slowing down, the future looks bright for this hard-working band.
