This month, Oakland’s Once & Future Band released two fresh singles off their forthcoming album, Deleted Scenes. Single “Freaks” is a tune with that jumps in with an energetic baseline and snarky, relatable break up lyrics. Songs have a touch more of a rock and roll pop vibe than their first album but those ELO and Paul McCartney influences are woven strongly throughout. Once & Future Band manages to sound epic yet grounded, fantastical yet relatable, and lord bless them, likable. Deleted Scenes is out April 10 on Castle Face Records and in the meantime, support your local artists.
