Hello Future’s debut single Do You Feel Alive will be released on 27th October 2014 via Saraseto Records. The band are heralding the new wave of artists emerging from Scotland that hark back to 90s American rock but with a distinct celtic edge.
Do You Feel Alive is full of youthful hope and promise, opening with chiming guitars that lead into a catchy chorus akin to Blink 182’s early days and breakdowns that Biffy Clyro would be proud of. However, there’s a strong hint of mid 90s American indie rock. The track itself is about reaching a crossroads, letting go of the past and moving forward - a sentiment that is reflected perfectly in the music, with the single coloured with a tinge of melancholy but also hope.
Liam McGowan, Ross Findlay, Stuart Harrison and Hamish Ferguson first came together in 2012 but after touring and playing for a few years under a different name they decided to change their sound, give the band a fresh name and a fresh start.
The single has already been championed by new music aficionado Jim Gellatly (XFM Scotland). With Do You Feel Alive being released as a free track on 27th October, this is only just the start for the band who plan to release another single and EP shortly after.
