Review: Synth Pop Act futurebabes Bring Us "Spreadsheets In Bedsheets"

By: Norman Hittle

Much like some of our favorite legendary artists, futurebabes came about out of a broken relationship and an artistic mindset to delve into music as therapy opposed to lingering in crippling sadness.


Since signing to Bandwagon Records in 2015, this Greeley-based synth pop act have been making headway with their drum machines and analog synthesizers that create a nostalgia  of 80s sounds. With a very indie nod to Joy Division and perhaps the Human League, futurebabes presents us with their latest single “Spreadsheets in Bedsheets.”

Aside from this recent release, they have also released 2015’s Day Job EP, 2016’s “Thirsty Man’s Hunger Plea” and 2016’s “Wolves”. You can peep all of these releases on their Bandcamp.

Keep an ear out for futurebabes and their upcoming Colorado shows, as well as a new tune or two as they are currently in the studio!
