Alt-rock trio Future Thieves have released their new song “I Don’t Think I’m Okay”. The track is off the band’s upcoming EP Emotional Cost out November 22, 2019, and features an upbeat tempo, electrifying guitar solo, and infectious vocals.
‘I Don’t Think I’m Okay’ is a sort of fictional song about a person who keeps waking up in someone else’s body. It goes back and forth from metaphor to questioning whether this is actually happening to this person. It came together like this just out of a snowball effect. One of those times where the first lyrics kind of guided me into what the song’s about. It’s a super light and airy tune that holds these deeper lyrics about not recognizing yourself at different points in your life. –Elliot Collett of Future Thieves
The upcoming project showcases the group’s sonic growth and their shared strength as musicians. Working with longtime producer Alex Jarvis and inspired by the likes of Portugal. The Man, Local Natives, and Spoon, Future Thieves has uncovered an elusive balance between eras on Emotional Cost.
The band first gave fans a taste of their upcoming EP with their tracks “My Body” and “Get Up.” “My Body” locks into a funky and soulful strut while anchored by a percussive groove and rich guitars. The momentum swells from intimate verses into a catchy chant with danceable swagger and endless energy punctuated by a hummable six-string solo. PRESS HERE to listen. “Get Up” illustrates the band’s signature style and sound with a catchy chorus, a beat that makes you want to dance, and a punctuating guitar riff. PRESS HERE to listen.
Future Thieves – Elliot Collett, Austin McCool, and Nick Goss – have created a signature style carved out of rock ‘n’ roll tradition yet anchored in modern 21st century production architecture. Their song “Horizon Line” has over 1 million streams on Spotify, and the band has garnered attention from the likes of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Team COCO, Billboard, Alternative Press, and more. They have also graced the stages of top festivals such as Bonnaroo, Summerfest, SXSW and Forecastle.
In the end, Future Thieves craft music that defies genre boundaries and eras and echoes with timeless spirit all the same.
