Brisbane’s Future Haunts dropped anthemic new single Fall In Line, premiering via Wickedd Childd this week. A sonic punch-back against “draconian lockout laws”, the track arrives ahead of the Future Haunts’ BIGSOUND performances next month.
Self-recorded at Plutonium Studios and mixed by Miro Mackie (St. Vincent, DZ Deathrays, Hatchie), in Ben Speight’s words, “‘Fall In Line’ was written around the time lockout laws were being introduced in Sydney and Brisbane. The live music community in Brisbane has worked extremely hard to develop one of the best places to go and engage with artists, and there really was a lot of uncertainty what consequences this would have on live music and the broader nightlife scene.
“The song’s a bit of a nod to all those who work hard to create and nurture a positive culture and to keep pushing on no matter what. The message behind the song is still just as relevant today, in the context of other knee-jerk decisions made to placate a few very loud voices in very high places”, he says.
Previous single Weather Vane has received strong community radio and online support, receiving triple j play, an add to triple j Unearthed, as well as playlist adds to Apple Music’s Best of the Week, Heaps Indie, The A List: Alternative and Today’s Indie Rock, as well as Spotify’s Broad Chords and Digster’s The In.
Having gained a reputation for their compelling live show, Future Haunts have supported the likes of Middle Kids, Hockey Dad, Horror My Friend and Bad//Dreems and are set to impress with two showcases at BIGSOUND 2019. With more music set for release this year, 2019 is set to be Future Haunts‘ biggest year yet.
Fall In Line is out everywhere NOW.
