Lovely album opener, “Home,” happily welcomes the band’s return to electronica from their previous Dream Pop release, Long Way From Home. This track, along with the gorgeously melancholic “Shine,” and epic album-closer, “Believe,” are bittersweet electro-pop gems in the vein of early Air or Zero 7, with lazy beats, lush arrangements, and Bee’s honeyed vocals. But Lum’s masterful guitar work sets the band apart from their contemporaries, bringing the rhythm and lead playing of a classic rock artist to a largely computer-based genre.
It’s the magical combination of Lum’s soulful guitar and Bee’s sumptuous vocal harmonies that is the cornerstone of Lovespirals’ unique signature sound. With a subtle yet powerful mix of musical moods and emotional expressions, Future Past is sure to enchant both old and new listeners for years to come.
