Future West returns with ‘See What I See’, the follow up to ‘Human’, which was released back in February. Out yesterday, June 14, ‘See What I See’ is a retro-tinged synth-led track which sees Future West imploring an unknown other person to skip town with them.

Born and raised in New York and performing as Feyer, Andrew Feyer has had a long past with music, having started with piano lessons before moving onto songwriting, and playing with various bands. He started recording and producing in his bedroom, where he developed his own style, and, in addition to working with other musicians, he also scores for film and video games. Feyer’s style is difficult to classify, but the hey elements are theatrical lyrics, electronic rock production, and a merging of futuristic and retro sounds. His latest track, ‘Stuck In A Video Game’ is accompanied by a music video which has been produced and animated by Aqueous Animation.

Although their “last show ever” in February 2011 could have been the end of the road for LCD Soundsystem, it’s pretty clear the music was never going to completely die for the Brooklyn band, who were named in 2013 as one of Rolling Stone’s “New Immortals”. And with the announcement of their reunion in 2016 and headlining of Coachella that year, it was only a matter of time that a new album from James Murphy and crew would also be released.
