It’s amazing what a three piece rock band comprised purely of rock staples including drums, bass, guitar, and wholehearted vocals can really do. The Dallas, Texas based trio known as Pseudo Future is slated to unveil their third release, Time Slips Aways, via Standby Records on July 29, 2016.
With prominent influences such as Foo Fighters, Brand New and Manchester Orchestra, Pseudo Future also introduces an unconventional and refreshing mixture of early emo and indie blues sounds in the vein of industry pioneers, Jimmy Eat World and The Spill Canvas.
Comparable to sex in an hourglass, Time Slips Away, dwindles down to the the very last second of the record, just one satisfactory grain at a time. Tracks such as “Hello Stranger” bring an airy key changing dance energy while gritty and ignited tunes like “Here to Blame” sink straight into your bones and rattle your entire body until the marrow runs thin from sonic elation.
Pseudo Future has brought forth an arousing song set that complements the early and lasting trends of 1990s and 2000s emo while successfully twisting it to meet a songwriting growth that cites over twenty years of alternative music innovation.
Is Time Slips Away perfect? Well, not many things are. It is indeed a valiant attempt at blending roots with relativity to the rock industry’s immediate stylistic future– or pseudo-future– all puns intended.
