When I think back to the 1980’s my mind visually throws back wild hairstyles, neon colored clothing and new wave music. Putting on my headphones with my eyes closed and listening to “Lightweight Eyes”, the new release from Future Unlimited, those visions undeniably come back to life. Bringing the 80’s new wave musical style and modernizing it is no small task but Future Unlimited show great promise. “Lightweight Eyes” starts out in their usual fashion with a melodic synthline gradually rolling up to the signature, almost monotonous bass backbone. Throw in the vocals and I feel right back in the middle of a Depeche Mode or Pet Shop Boy listening party.
“Lightweight Eyes” has a lot of different electronic layers blended smoothly together and the Nashville duo have created a foundation to build on in the modern new wave arena. Get to know David Miller and Samuel D’Amelio because I have a feeling you might be hearing a lot more from them in the near future. For your listening pleasure, I have included my favorite Future Unlimited track “Into The Sun”. It’s a little different stylistically but is fantastic in my opinion!
