Future Radio’s descent into the daring regions of what they call Future Rock continues with their latest release, State of Emergency. This is the second single from their forthcoming studio album, Identity, scheduled to release in 2022.
With this release, the band makes a distinct shift towards a more modern rock sound, reminiscent of bands like the Foo Fighters and Rival Sons.
Some of the standout features of the song are the prominent intro riff played in a half-time feel and the powerful vocal that forms the chorus hook, which cannot be shaken off. The James Bond like bridge section creates tension and effectively supports the overarching theme of an emergency.
