Brooklyn, NY’s Future Of What have debuted their new song “Daydream 99” and the “sun-beam-kissed mix of keyboards and guitars” can be streamed below. The track is the third off the band’s upcoming debut album Pro Dreams, which will be released on January 13, 2015.
Recorded in numerous studios across three New York boroughs (and one Massachusetts attic) with the help of co-producer Brian Thorn (Blonde Redhead, Smith Westerns, David Bowie), Pro Dreams is an evocative, dreamy collection. The songs are rooted lyrically in the death of singer Blair’s younger brother – a natural continuation from her debut solo LP Die Young (Autumn Tone 2011) – and branches into ruminations on matters including: loves lost, found, and unrequited; life in New York City; regret and friendship; lovers as friends; friends as lovers; and this ridiculous planet. Musically, Pro Dreams ranges from the easy, subtle cascades of opener “The Rainbowed Air” to the aching, forlorn pop of “Call It Spring” and “Party In Heaven” from the dreamy slow jams of “Saving Private Rihanna” and “Double Thoughts” to the moody synth-laden pulse of “MLSBB.”
Pro Dreams follows Future Of What’s debut EP Moonstruck, released in June 2012.
