Future Shapes is a four-piece shitwave band from San Francisco, CA. Originally Fil Cala's moniker, the band has quickly evolved--working together since early 2015 to push their psychedelic-comedown brand of indie-rock around the SF-Bay Area. Already they’ve performed at home-town-favorite Bottom of the Hill, headlined at Brick & Mortar Music Hall, and helped sell out the beloved Viracocha. Their split EP released in April received high marks from around the web, most notably from the Bay Bridged.
After their last performance at the Rickshaw Stop with Nick Diamonds (ex-Unicorns/Islands) they went into hiding, preparing to release their debut EP titled Microchasm. They've since premiered their first single, "Feel", via NYC's the Big Takeover.
Their forthcoming EP, Microchasm, is set to be released in January of 2016 by Wave Dweller Records.
"'Feel' comes from the forthcoming Microchasm EP, and it's another winner from these 'reverb-happy sad-boy fog dwellers'..."
"Cala's vocals still acts as a wondrous protagonist, crawling on its knees through the tracks three-and-a-half minutes, a punch-drunk combo of slurred words and eminently quotable turn-of-phrase."
"Future Shapes still succeed in obscuring meaning with abstract imagery, and sending shivers up your spine with creeping guitar lines."
"They describe their sound as "shitwave", but don't let that deter you in the slightest cause 'Feel' is exactly what you want soundtracking your Friday (a little fuzz, reverb, and lo-fi rock)."
tl;dr Reverb-happy sad-boy fog dwellers.
