“Soul gayze” and “avant pop” Future Twin to showcase new music at the Knockout

(photo: Alexey Turanov) When Jean Jeanie isn't fighting for organized housing in San Francisco, she moonlights as Future Twin, a generative artist fighting the good fight through her "soul gayze" and "avant pop." Her new album Suffer No Fools, out in late summer, is a cross-pollination with other artists and musicians living in similar trenches: Music written with San Francisco expats Mike E.G. (Brooklyn) and Miles DeIaco (Berlin), SF luminary Kelyn Crapp. Future Twin, All Boy/All Girl, Nu Normol, Small Crimes The Knockout (3223 Mission) June 20, 2019 $10, 9pm

Fundraiser compilation track highlight: Future Twin — “Hope”

San Francisco's synth-centric, vocal-driven group Future Twin joins the list, with 44 other bands, of music that comes along with our fundraiser compilation. Their to-be-released track "Hope" is inspired by David Lynch's Catching The Big Fish, an autobiography and self-help book that discusses topics of consciousness, meditation and creativity. "Hope" is filled with melodies that coincide with one another. A dream-like guitar riff starts off the track and is supplemented with a heavy bass line. True to Future Twin style, the band then adds a number of layered synth tracks, each floating and crossing into one another, turning the song into a [...]

Best of the Rest – January 2015 (Mikal Cronin, Geographer, Sonny & the Sunsets, & more)

  Every month, our editors hear lots of great new music, at shows around the Bay, exploring the far reaches of the Interwebs, and sifting through the veritable deluge of emails from artists and publicists around the globe hawking the latest songs and videos. While we'd love to write about everything that catches our ear, it's impossible – there's just too much good music out there. This is an attempt at rounding up the latest and greatest that we didn't have the bandwidth to cover throughout the month – the Best of the Rest for January 2015. Former son of [...]

Coming to San Francisco: Sego at Slim’s

Some lyric videos make you abuse the snooze button. Others bring you back to obsessively nit-picking the universal truths hidden in lyrics that got you, the real you. Sego conjures neither of these emotions (perhaps because the writer has learned patience as well to press lighter on the eyeliner) and instead dumps you into an aesthetically amusing bibliophile wonderland. In "False Currency" hands with Addams Family personality scribble and sketch while Sego's incredibly hooky and unique brand of danceable rock plays in tandem. "False Currency" was culled from their Wicket Youth EP which dropped Monday on French label Kitsuné. Check the video below. Pretty neat, huh? Well, if you're into the [...]

Future Twin to debut “interactive video” at Roxie Theater

Everyone's favorite local purveyors of “punkadelic farmageddon grandma rock,” Future Twin, are set to debut a video for the track "We're Here" from their Chillality EP on August 13 at the Mission's Roxie Theater. Future Twin may claim to play "grandma rock," but your grandma would spit out her dentures if she saw what the kids are getting up to with their music videos these days. Future Twin created the "We're Here" clip by using the same software that was used to create that interactive video for Bob Dylan's "Like A Rolling Stone" (the one where you can flip through [...]

Bands to play happy hour show for David Campos

In order to creatively mix up awareness about the San Francisco Bay Area housing crisis, a group of bands are coming together to play a show which will double as a meet-and-greet with David Campos, a candidate for the State Assembly in the election coming up this June 3rd. Participating local bands are Future Twin and El Terrible, with a DJ set by San Francisco staple Jamie Jams. Future Twin is a punk-psychedelic get-up that is fronted by Jean Jeanie, a powerful singer who can command a stage with her booming voice. El Terrible, a punk/new wave trio, will bring [...]

Premiere: Stream Future Twin’s new cassingle, ‘Chillality’

(Photo by Nate Watters) 2014 should prove to be one helluva year for San Francisco's Future Twin – the band is currently circulating their full-length debut Wavelength Sovereignty to labels, and it will be released later in the year. Now, in the run-up to that album, they're self-releasing a cassingle entitled Chillality, which officially drops next Tuesday, April 29, and we're premiering today exclusively on The Bay Bridged. The cassingle was recorded alongside the full-length last summer at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, with Reto Peter acting as producer and engineer. "He made forts to house our amps in the big [...]

Future Twin, Cocktails, & Blood Sister rocked our Noise Pop Happy Hour

Photos by Daniel Kielman Not to brag or anything (OK, totally to brag), but we throw one hell of a party. To welcome in the weekend of 2014’s Noise Pop, The Bay Bridged hosted a few of our favorite bands — and at least 100 now-close friends — at Bender’s on South Van Ness. The lineup read like a Bay Bridged Class of 2013, starting with Blood Sister. Blood Sister, who played with Mikal Cronin at The Chapel the night after, put forth a fun collection of their slightly-askew rock ‘n’ roll as folks filed in and first rounds were [...]
