Sentient sonic anarchists Black Futures have released ‘Body & Soul’, the newest offering to be taken from their debut album, Never Not Nothing, which is out August 30 via Music For Nations. ‘Body & Soul’ showcases two integral pieces of the Black Futures formula – the calm and the chaos. Catchy and infectious melodies swell throughout the verses, creating a false sense of security which is shattered by the thunderous distortion of the ground-quaking chorus.
Featuring footage from Expedition 001, which saw the band circumnavigate the globe in one trip taking in the vast desolation of Joshua Tree – where they erected a monolithic logo in the middle of a hippy commune and played a strung-out gig as witnessed in the video for previous single ‘Trance’ – to performing an outrageous set in an abandoned Russian Cold War bunker in Berlin where Soviet warheads had been aimed at the West.
The Expedition also saw them spend time in the Far East where the duo filmed the video for ‘Body & Soul’ in the metropolis of Tokyo. Amid tropical heat and the anarchic influence of the city’s punk clubs, the video features a breakdancing hazmat dancer whose energy and movement mirrors the track’s infectious intensity.
Acclaimed for their raucous and wild shows, Black Futures have made a name for themselves following a string of incredible performances supporting Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes as well as a number of mind-blowing festival appearances at All Points East, Camden Rocks, Download Festival and Glastonbury.
They’re now set to take their anarchic live show and army of hazmats to Kendal Calling and Boomtown to end their triumphant summer, before heading out across the UK throughout October supporting Black Peaks.
