“…essentially Jarvis Cocker in Burial’s body, or Drake if he came from the Midlands not Ontario.” The Guardian
Ahead of the release of FTSE II EP, FTSE (pronounced ‘footsie’) shares new track ‘Lost In Translation’, as premiered on FADER.
‘Lost In Translation’ is exceptional in every way. A simple arpeggio fades up, like the solar energy of daybreak, and featured co-vocalist, Femme, emits an angelic coo like cotton wool before a penetrating break of snares cracks through the ether and an equally engaging baritone propels the post-club narrative. “Never again, until next weekend. I just gotta get some sleep and I’ll be fine” the key message that alternates, always hopefully, between remorse and revelation.
Having made his live debut supporting AlunaGeorge in London in June, FTSE returns to headline Corsica Studios on the 25th of September. Details and tickets : HERE
