Suburbia Blue is the debut release from Future Jr. Immersive, ambient-pop, this track offers an exciting new perspective on “coming of age”.
Future Jr. is the sonic tapestry forged by new Australian artist, Matt Nainby. Influenced by the likes of Toro y Moi, Lorde and fellow Australian Winston Surfshirt — Nainby began his alchemy in the depths of his parents house in Brisbane; guitar in hand, crouched over the glow of his fledgling synth collection.
Armed with disarming lyricism and a love for immersive musical textures, Nainby has bound together an intriguing piece of electro-pop with ‘Suburbia Blue’. “Small towns never held me / I’m more than sidewalk routine” he declares in the track’s soaring chorus, amidst swirling electronics and throbbing synths. It’s this notion of dreams aligning with reality that is most prominent in Suburbia Blue — “Never bought suburbia dreams / Here I’ve got nothing to prove”.
Speaking on the release of ‘Suburbia Blue’, Nainby says. “It’s all about feeling out of place, figuring out who you really are, and learning to deal with the dreams that feel bigger than you”.
‘Suburbia Blue’ – the first track to be released from forthcoming debut EP Vacancy, is out now worldwide via Kobalt.
