The opening hooks immediately caught my ear on Edinburgh five-piece Future Get Down’s second single, When It Works, set to be released tomorrow.
Taken from their forthcoming debut album, Here We Go, Wonder, out on 11th September, When It Works has a propulsive electronic beat that will get those feet moving, while the lyrics “when it works, it works good. When it doesn’t work, it’s doing you no good” provide a perfect mantra for life.
Future Get Down have already garnered support from the likes of Kraftwerk’s Wolfgang Flür, Jenny Hval, and GNOD, and it’s easy to see why. The band have built up a reputation for their captivating live performances and throbbing dance music. When It Works is an excellent example of the act’s krautrock-inspired style, and their hook-laden songs provide the perfect antidote to the surreal times that we are currently living in.
