The by-product of over seven years spent creating and performing music is a camaraderie difficult to describe. Future Generations, composed of Eddie Gore, Devon Sheridan, Mike Sansevere, Eric Grossman and Dylan Wells, lives together, tours together, and writes together. They share song ideas and demos, a kitchen and chores. In the largest room of their Brooklyn apartment, the band writes with ambition, and on stages large and small, and in cities far from home, the band performs with gravitational comity.
You could forgive people for thinking, after so long, the group might grow tired of one another. Instead, they lean on their friendship for comfort. In every nook and cranny of Future Generations’ catalogue, one will find comfort in realizing the positive value of shared experiences - whether good or bad, fleeting or infinite, big or small. Their first full length album, released in 2016, was a great introduction into the band’s ambitious sound while the album’s tracks like the standout “Stars,” give insight to the uncertainty and expectations of life, love and relationships.
LP2 is long underway, under the guidance of producer/mixer/engineer Justin Gerrish (Vampire Weekend) and can be expected by the end of 2018. Most of the demos from the forthcoming album were written in the largest bedroom of their small apartment in Brooklyn. Led by lead singer and lyricist Gore, FG transported its bedroom demos into the refinery of Gerrish’s studio. They’ve emerged with an array of unique songs, interlocking into a landscape of beautiful sounds and deep, varied emotion - love and lust, uncertainty and frustration, anxiety and exhaustion.
Come catch FG when they’re on the road. They’ve recently toured with the likes of Savoir Adore, Private Island + supported pronoun, Day Wave and Mt. Joy. On tour, FG has been slipping new songs into the rotation, and it won’t be long before singles begin to trickle online this summer. They’ll be on tour with The Lagoons and Plastic Picnic this summer.
