Indie rockers, Forgetting The Future, are set to build on their recent successes with a brand new track.
The new track, ‘Latch’, features musical echoes of Catfish And The Bottlemen and The Snuts (both of which are cited by the group as key influences) and was recorded and produced by award winning producer, Ken Allardyce, whose CV features names such as Green Day, Fleetwood Mac, and David Bowie. According to the band, Allardyce has helped the band craft their tight signature sound. The band won the chance to work with Allardyce at 2018’s ‘Battle of the Bands’.
Originating in Scotland in 2014, the band is made up of frontman/guitarist, Robbie McNicol, drummer, Connor Wilson, Bassist, Max Paul and guitarist, Jamie Mackay.
Over the years, they have built an impressive portfolio; supporting the likes of Sam Fender and Baby Strange and have also worked in the studio with Orange Juice legend, Edwyn Collins.
Their new track comes one year after the band dropped their debut album, 'Broken Phones & Hormones’ which was released a year after the band had earned themselves a record deal with InTime Records. The band released 4 singles from their debut, all of which attracted critical acclaim. The most successful of the singles, ‘Cherry’, went on to become the band’s most successful song and has accumulated over 130,000 streams on Spotify. It’s the success of ‘Cherry’ that the band hope to build on with their latest release.
With their recent successes, the future looks bright for the band and they are set to build their profile further when they appear at several music festivals throughout 2021.
There is excitement being created around the band and their fan base is only going to grow in the coming months. 2021 looks to be shaping up to be a big year for the band.
