Video Premiere: Future Forests launch first single

Saskatoon band debuts with video for “Steve Goes For a Bike Ride”

Future Forests, a Saskatoon indie post-rock band, have made their debut via an exclusive video with Ominocity.

The band’s initial single, “Steve Goes For a Bike Ride”, is part of a two part video launch, with both songs comprising the band’s debut EP.

Musically, the band kicks off between nervously energetic and quirky indie-isms before wandering off into more cinematic post rock landscapes. With all four members contributing vocals, along with hooky harmonies and trading off guitar lines, Future Forests take familiar influences and combine them for a punchy sound that retains a careful delicacy.

Kaelen Klypak, the Future Forests’ drummer says that the second single, “Sunyata Act I”, will be released in the new year. Additionally, the band are planning on recording a full-length in early 2014.

“We are a band that is influenced by architecture and design and art,” says Klypak. “So the music we write incorporates those elements.”

Members of Future Forests have played in bands such as Tombstone Diaries, Another Day Down, The Soccer Moms and The Villain Avian Symphony – a Vancouver band that Klypak played in along with past members of SNFU, The Black Halos and 3 Inches of Blood.

Details for upcoming shows are currently in the works but Klypak says that the band is planning on a few surprises. “Nothing we want to reveal yet, but there will be some announcements soon.”
