From Nottingham, Dystopian Future Movies (great name) make dark, disturbing, cinematic post-rock. And yet, that’s barely the start of it.
The debut album, Time, came out at the start of July. It is at times both beautiful and brutal, melancholic and uplifting. Pieces keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout it’s six minutes 40, always threatening to burst out, but repeatedly pulling back from the brink before finally entering it’s climactic phase. It’s quite the thing, the gentle vocals differentiating DFM from kings of the genre such as Mogwai. It adds a depth which can sometimes be lacking in such post-rock acts.
This is a highly accomplished debut.
