Future Loves Past, "Earth"

Future Loves Past is an indie-rock band from Phoenix. For more information, visit the band on Facebook.

Up on the Sun: I really like the first three minutes of that song.

My whole thing is, if I needed a mind-enema, this is that track [laughs]. You can clear your mind, and just enjoy the music. My dad played acoustic guitar his whole life, so anything that has any acoustic in it, I like a lot. It was real fun, and had great energy. My initial reaction was, "Starbucks!" I could hear this in a Starbucks. If you make it to the Starbucks playlist, you have made it [laughs]. I could see this there in a year, it has that feeling that just calms you, opens you up, clears your mind.

I like it. It reminds me of a band called Dungen, or some of Led Zeppelin's pop-oriented stuff, like In Through the Out Door. After those initial three minutes, I didn't dislike any of it, but just sitting here listening to it, I found myself thinking about all the work I could be doing while listening.

If you're playing it and getting some work done, that's good. It has a Coachella feel, a "be free" type feel to it.

I think they have a lot to offer.

The thing that I love about being raised in a house full of music is that you can tell when someone is doing it because they love it. You can tell like that [snaps] when they are doing it for the check. You can feel the love in the music, just wanting to do it because you have to do it. These guys definitely have that. I'm going to download this EP.

For free.

Free -99! Future Loves Past, gotta download that EP if you want to get some mind-enema music!

While I find it odd that they used one of our songs in this, I always find it interesting to hear what people who don't listen to our genre think of us. Glad it was someone who at least can appreciate the spirit of it and not someone who was just gonna bash it for being "noise." And yes, the puppy comment was very funny considering our singer's obssession with his dogs.

Future Loves Past's musical creations are in fact a labor of love. Intense scrutiny of everything they create visually and aurally make for an experience that never disappoints. However, if you like the EP I'd strongly recommend you go to a show. FLP are one of those rare special  bands that magically sounds BETTER live than they do on their album and nothing compares to being in the crowd when there's 100-200 people singing the chorus to "Mountain" or when the crowds being whipped into a dancing frenzy while they play "Earth", "Outsiders", and "Mean Love".

Hahaha, I'm glad that he likes puppies cause I'm a huge animal lover! Lol- my thing is if you're doing what you love and are making money at it then more power to you. Not everything that makes sense to you has to make sense to me in order for it to work and I can respect any genre of music as long as the artist stays true to themself. Hip-hop though? I'll be critical because I work in and with it. But keep going!
