Earlier this summer, Future Generations swung by Industry City in Brooklyn to deliver a killer set at one of the latest Bands + Brews, presented by Baeble Music. As the sun settled into the skyline, the NYC-based quintet enhanced the warm August breeze with their soaring electric guitars and nostalgic vocals.
The indie rockers performed some new songs, like their latest single "One More Problem" which was released just the month before via Frenchkiss Records. This moment really made us feel like we were at a stadium rather than an outdoor courtyard. Frontman Eddie Gore's pop-tinged vocal boasted similarities to MGMT or Foster The People, especially when paired with the band's psychedelia-flavored music. In addition to hearing a new single, the band also played a handful of cuts off of their self-titled 2016 album, like "Rain," "Grace," and "Black & Bleu," amongst others.
Already sick of the cold fall weather? Fear not, because our latest Bands + Brews concert with Future Generations is bound to warm you up.
Future Generations has been busy since their debut album in July 2016. They hit the road, joining Savoir Adore for a couple spot dates in Chicago and Atlanta, and then stayed busy at home; playing sold out shows at Baby's All Right with Day Wave, Music Hall of Williamsburg and Bowery Ballroom (with City Of The Sun) as well as a headline show at Rough Trade. Future Generations also appeared at SXSW, playing five shows in four days, and had two shows at Firefly Festival.
In addition to the nearly 6.5 million streams for "Stars," the single "Coast" has gained over 1 million streams. "You've Got Me Flush" has emerged as the band's second most popular song from the album, also eclipsing 1 million streams. The album has led to favorable comparisons to MGMT and Passion Pit, with the band's love of catchy hooks and dynamic electronic production evident throughout.
