Dundalk Alt-Fi Foursome Seek Absolution For All Their Sins On Latest Intense Single
Track: All My Sins
Band: Future West
Released: April 19 2022
All My Sins is the second single from Future West's upcoming LP Who Will Forgive All My Sins. Frontman Francis Watters declares this to be his favourite from the album and and once again his lyrics show the searing honest and emotional heft we have come to expect from this talented tune and word smith. When we asked him to talk about All My Sins, he was initially hesitant and then told us "I spent the night mulling it over and came to the decision that it's better to be honest about what these things are about otherwise, what's the point in creating?"
"All My Sins was written from a place of dealing with self inflicted grief. It’s a piece about breaking things down, re-evaluation and learning to love one’s self despite our flaws and the mistakes we make. The sections of the track represent different stages of the emotions that these actions cause us through anger, sorrow and a glimmer of hope."
This lyrical openness feeds through into a track which is charged not only with an alt indie guitar energy but also a feeling that it all means something. As Camus had it - by their act of lucidity they win their authenticity.
Future West are Francis Watters on guitar and vocals, Peter McCoy on guitar, John Mellon slapping bass and Pauric McCrum on the drumstool. The new lineup have spent the last 18 months writing and recording in their newly built home studio. This track is the second single to be taken from their second album, Who Will Forgive All My Sins, due for release digitally and on glorious vinyl in July 2022.
