Felix and the Future is “is beaming from the cosmos,” says eastvillageboys.com.
Felix is a solo artist from Brooklyn, New York, but he sublets a one-bedroom apartment on Neptune.
His music, consisting of piano-based pop music, self-described as Cosmic Balladry, launches from Earth and travels light years away.
He was born of Mexican and German-Irish decent. His Mexican roots were woven with witches, phantoms, and flying nuns amidst a family of supernatural storytellers.
Felix spent his teenage years developing his poetry, studying acting, and studying ballet and modern dance. He then fled to New York to pursue studies in acting, and quickly found a calling towards the piano. Determined to be a self-taught pianist, he sold his computer and bought a digital piano. Eventually, Felix combined his love for all four arts to create the musical persona: Felix and the Future.
He has finished two high concept music videos, entirely self-produced. His first EP will be released in April 2011. His first video “Steady Hum Drum” takes place on the moon. RetailDj.com describes it as “one of the most visually exciting videos I have seen in a while.”
EQMUSICBLOG.COM premiered his second music video “Apollonia” and writes : Felix “is like a new Patrick Wolf if you ask me and I do have my eyes firmly locked on him - so should you.”

Well today is no exception as EQ presents to you the brand new video for "Apollonia" by the amazing Felix and The Future. Beautifully shot in shot on location in Real De Catorce, Mexico, an abandoned silvering mining town in the mountains of Central Mexico. "Apollonia" embodies drama, passion and beauty as Felix battles a giant dodo bird in a bullfighting ring.
We asked Felix to commente on the video and track and this is what the rising musician had to say about the track:
"I wrote Apollonia one summer afternoon after a tumultuous year of ridding myself of people who wanted only the worst for me. I had a fear of writing for about 2 years, and suddenly I went over to my piano, in my 6'X6' room and conjured up "Apollonia". In the song, I cross the Atlantic and meet Gandhi, yet am still very disconnected from all of life's splendors until I meet Apollonia. She leads me to the Carnival and I haven't turn back since.
The concept for the music video is to show two versions of a dreamer and his potential. One is a tired vagabond living in the past, performing for an audience that doesn't exist. The other is a confident and strong bullfighter battling "The Giant Dodo". The video, like the song, ends triumphantly - defeating the Dodo and looking towards the future. Coincidentally after this video was finished, I embraced my full name: Felix and the Future."
I really love this track and video - Felix and The Future is like a new Patrick Wolf if you ask me and I do have my eyes firmly locked on him - so should you.
