By Zero 7
Futures is the first single to be released from Zero 7's new album "The Garden" which is set to be released in May. It follows the same sound we have come to expect from Zero 7, with laid back summer-time vibes. The only real surprise of the track is the greater emphasis on vintage style synths to really fill out the sound, and give it a lot more of a almost Prog-rock feel. Jose Gonzalez' vocals are perfect for the Zero 7 sound and really sit well with lush multi-layered and textured musical backing.
The song also takes the listener by surprise in the outro, where a break from formula sees the track veer off into a glitchy/effected synth and vocals sample interplay. The vibe still remains the same - a perfect sound track for the summer.
