There are kisses that hurt like kicks, and blows that turn into caresses. At least, in Futuro Terror‘s brand new album, that is the truth: their particular way of smelling blood has been to combine the striking and recognizable punch of the Levantine combo with brilliant manageability. Translated into vernacular: in “Sangre”, the vocation and urgent electric rawness brand of the house, merge like never before.
Because the return of Futuro Terror to Humo Internacional (label where the band published their first albums, when we were still living our previous mutation under the name of Discos Humeantes) is, curiously, their most melodic album, but also the most urgent. ‘Sangre’ is more pop, but in a way in which they handle a more seared sound, in which if you squeeze with the fork you can smell blood.
And the blood can be smelled in the ten new tracks of Future Terror: less than half an hour in which the already known (and foreboding apocalyptic) “Territorio devastado” and “Mañana” resonate; or “Komsomol”, the song closest to their usual register; but also songs called to become classics of their repertoire such as “Frío”, “Matar / Morir”, “Rukeli” or “¿Qué hacer?” among others.
An album in which the boundaries between electric pop, ultra-melodic garage, apocalyptic story-telling, luminous post-punk and urgent songbook blur and blend into each other. The album was recorded in January 2020 at the HarriSound Studio in Torrellano and mastered at the North London Bomb Factory in London; It is available on both vinyl and CD, as well as a limited edition cassette.
