"Presently Post Most Things"
A trepid journey through a serene expanse, a moment of quietude amidst a current of melody...Future Scars embodies the coexistence of the calm and calamity of waking life. Founded in 2015 by members of As In We, Future Scars boasts a lineup of dedicated musicians seasoned with nearly a decade of cooperative experience. Emotionally rooted in the contemplative, melodic atmosphere of post-rock, Future Scars expands beyond a singular genre’s expectations, often times overflowing into the domain of sheer intensity and fervor. The group couples these drastically varied, yet complementary components with the recurrent flurries of heart-wrenching vocals, creating an aura of earnest exhilaration and beauty. Laced with technicality and the prowess of control, Future Scars construct a sound balanced in adversity, soothing and cathartic yet all the while anxious with anticipation.
Future Scars released their debut EP entitled Before, There Was Fear this November, an effort that highlights the group's diversity and sheer emotionality. Throughout its very personal five tracks, the debut reads as an obvious ode to transition. The songs traverse genres as disparate as folk rock to black metal and emotions ranging from triumph to despair and tell the story of personal upheaval and recovery. From the music to the EP's title and the name of the band itself, Future Scars' debut conveys the message that by embracing the process of overcoming our misfortunes we emerge resilient and more complete than our former selves.
