a new hope: future unlimited – download 'golden' & 'when it calls'

 

When it comes to synthpop revivalism, Nashville probably isn’t the first place that comes to mind. David Miller and Samuel D’Amelio are out to change that with their new as-good-or-better-than-anything-on-DFA project Future Unlimited.

Miller and D’Amelio were neighbors who bonded over a shared love of 80’s new wave and post punk. What they’ve created together is a sound that passes over the low-hanging fruit of Depeche Mode and digs deeper into the synthpop lexicon.

A listen to the duo’s forthcoming Cloak & Dagger EP recalls the edge of Gary Numan, the swagger of Heaven 17, the melody of OMD and the passion of early Tears For Fears. Check out “Golden” and you’ll see what I mean:

“When It Calls” is more laid back, but really projects that Tubeway Army vibe:

Make a mental note to keep a close eye on these guys.. they’ll be announcing SXSW dates soon.
