Alt-rock, psychedelic pop group Futurist are getting set to release their new album Omens and, to help build the hype, we’re premiering the band’s new live, studio performance video for “Olive Mountain.” This is the first single to come from the sophomore LP, recorded in late 2018 in the foursome’s basement rehearsal space in the Lower East Side, New York City. The song can be saved/purchased now, via both Spotify and Apple Music.
The title “Olive Mountain” is a play on the ‘Mount of Olives,’ a biblical phrase common in the New Testament and the place where Jesus stood the night he was betrayed. Overcome by the horror of the crucifixion he was about to experience, his sweat fell like “drops of blood” and he prayed to God for strength. The band felt this served as a good metaphor for what the lyrics in “Olive Mountain” are about.
