"Single Review: Future Misters - "Tension""

Since they initially formed in 2017, indie rock group Future Misters have experienced several lineup changes, but not before releasing their first two EP’s (Around for the Wrong Time, Not The Long Time and Potato Blimp to Mars) and stamping their name down as “one to watch.” After more shakeups within their lineup during the summer of 2019, the group now seems to have found the perfect mix of ingredients and is ready to re-emerge and further uphold their status as “one to watch” with their new single “Tension.” “Feel that good old-fashioned tension, feel the sweat build in your hand,” begins the lyrics as you’re sucked into an upbeat song that carries a feel reminiscent of the lo-fi, garage rock era of bands such as The Hives, Jet, and The White Stripes. The lyrics walk on the mischievous side as they tempt you to come along for the ride while they find something to get into in their little town, all while exposing slight pieces of who he is, “the devil came and bought me, paying half the price.” The second verse brings a bit of a different feel to the song as it changes just enough of the melody to allow room for the vocals to be a little bit snottier and lean more into their classic punk rock influenced side. The great blend of clean and dirty guitar tones throughout the bridge also kicks in a different feel that will transcend you back in time to the 1960’s and it’s more dangerous side of rock-n-roll ala bands such as The Rolling Stones or The Kinks. In just a little over 3 minutes, Future Misters have given us something to be excited about with “Tension.” The song is gritty, raw, dangerous, dirty, and everything that a great rock song is supposed to be. So, now that they’ve re-stamped their name as “one to watch,” we can only hope that this is just the first glimpse into more still to come! - All Ages Zine

"Future Misters Release New Single “Tension”"

Michigan-based indie rock band Future Misters have released their new single “Tension,” available on all digital platforms NOW. A firm representation of Future Misters’ sonic identity, “Tension” is the band’s first release of 2020. The track combines two opposite types of instrumentation – heavy guitar riffs and a bluesy groove. The styles make for a unique and fresh pairing, setting Future Misters on a songwriting path all their own. About the single, the band states:
“The song is about a feeling of chaos in facing pressures of the real world and being pushed into a life you don’t want to live. I wrote it right around the time I finished school and started working, and realized that life is too short to not have as many good experiences as you can. There’s more to life than just graduating, working, maybe going on a vacation every once in a while, and retiring.”

This week’s feature are some youngsters, but not too young, there’s one thing for sure, they aren’t quite Misters, yet. Take a little time hang with the band: Trevor strums and sings, Fluke hits the box, Berto strums and sings, and Nick hits the bass. I first met these dudes after playing a show with them in Grand Rapids and knew they would be perfect for this series. Now they are off on tour with Antighost! The Future is closer then it appears… - RYNE CLARKE
