A Hope for the Future

Goodfellow fires in with striking teaser single ”Illusion”

Feeling lied to and having the impression that you don’t have any real friends left must a sad and reflective feeling. You had hope and then it got snatched away. This certain realization of a falling heart hurts like piece of glass stuck in your foot. There is pain but you can take it out and heal the wounds. Goodfellow is a new artist on the scene with a vibrant style and he flows in with this fantastic single of substance.

With an overriding feeling of paranoia we are introduced to an artist with a telling tale to show us. ”Illusion” has a powerful beat and the start is quite magnificently created. I feel like there is smoke everywhere and the artist is slowly floating down. He is ready for this song to explode into action and so are we. Dealing with past relationships that didn’t work out is flashed before our eyes. Words are pointless now with no actions. You can try for only so long. I like this track from Goodfellow and only wish it was a bit longer. I guess that is the point. This was a teaser track, showing us to the window of where this artist can be. More music is welcome when an artist is a quality storyteller and the content is of value.

Stream this striking song and more from this rising artist right here on his Spotify channel.

A Hope For The Future – Loaded Gun: Wake Up To The Future Of Dream Pop.

Ironically the band Hope for the Future does just that for its genre with their debut hit Loaded Gun.

A Hope for The Future are a futuristic collective of musician’s which hail from Stockholm, Sweden with their effervescent Alternative Dream Pop Sound. Their New track Loaded Gun alludes to their musical influences. The female lead vocalist has all of the powerful synergy of fellow singers from The Cardigans, and The XX whilst the minimalist in part, monstrous in others is a slight nod to other contemporary Alternative artist such as M83 and Arcade fire.

They create an enriched harmony throughout the track through the effect of the jingling guitar which rattles charismatically all through the track to lead it up to an explosive sound in the chorus. A Hope For The Future have definitely created an anthem through Loaded Gun that wouldn’t be out of place on a Made In Chelsea soundtrack.

The collective have created a universally lovable sound with their relatable and resonant styling that shines with euphoric charisma.
