During the extended break following the release of War Is Yesterday, Futurist have undergone some substantive changes in their overall aesthetic and collaborators. Departing from their light-hearted, indie folk-rock sounds from their debut, the band have clearly developed some deeper and more nuanced styles that are featured throughout their sophomore record, Omens. Living truer to form, the album is more technologically ambitious, through tracks such as “Slow Motion,” “Bad Air, Still Water,” and the harrowing and experimental “Harakiri, Futurist have embraced their modern tools to create a hybrid of sound, both classic and forward-moving. Peel’s lyrics on songs such as “Olive Mountain,” “Crazy Eights,” and the symphonic “Behold! (Lullaby for the End of Days)” all touch upon the modern malaise and compulsive outrage that plagues an era of instant gratification and nonstop news cycles. All the while the childlike rock anthem “Born on Fire” or the punch-drunk “All I Ever Wanted” prove that the band has not lost touch with their optimistic roots.
