There's a lot to like about "Mechanical Bride", the new song from Futsu: the twin vocals; the organ bubbling gently or loudly at all the right times; the, ah, interesting and colourful video. These are all just appetisers to the main dish, however - the tasty feast that is the bassline in the chorus.
Futsu is a Indie Pop Rock band from Paris via Sydney Australia. "Mechanical Bride" is the first single from their upcoming album Body Island, due out in December.
In the band's own words:
Futsu is a band, armed with falsettos, harmonies, guitars, effects pedals, violin, tambourines, shakers and a smile as a rifle. Futsu play melodically sharp pop songs that move people and make people move.
Futsu emphasizes melody and emotion in his vocals and guitar playing with a taste for organic percussive sounds constructed from household objects. While the music encompasses an experimental approach in the recording process embracing "accidents" and "mistakes" it is always contained in a strong pop coating.
