Biography

Future Loves Past is a six-piece sci-fi/soul/pop band from Tempe, AZ. Since its inception, the band has become a fixture in the Phoenix music scene, both for their unique and rich sound, as well as their dynamic onstage presence. Core members include lead singer and bassist Eric Palmer, guitarist Tristan DeDe, keyboardist Sean Wintrow and drummer Enrique Naranjo. Sarah Hibner and Jacob Tulsi cushion the band's live sound contributing vocals as well as additional keys and percussion.

The band's first full-length album, All The Luscious Plants was released in September of 2013 and debuted in the top 200 of the CMJ charts. Almost entirely crowd-funded via their successful Kickstarter campaign, the band later signed with Common Wall Media to distribute the completed album to blogs and college radio stations nationwide. All The Luscious Plants was produced by Bob Hoag of Flying Blanket Recording (The Format, The Ataris, Dear and the Headlights). The first single from the album ("Grow Up Tall") was featured exclusively on Paste Magazine's website in July of 2013.

Future Loves Past has earned a reputation for their DIY approach to everything from their eccentric live shows to their homemade animated music videos (by Tristan DeDe) and entirely original artwork (by Eric Palmer). In April of 2014, the band released a preview of a concept album in the form of the Our Solar System EP, featuring tracks "Sun", "Luna" and "Earth" along with additional material including a remix and binaural-beat-laden soundscapes. A full Album has been written but not entirely recorded.

Most recently, the band returned from playing three showcases at CMJ in NYC to promote their newest EP "Hold On Tight".

Lyrics

Earth

Written By: Eric W. Palmer

I don't wanna go chasing after silhouettes
I've got to save my strength for my decisions
Could it be, we're just leaves on the same tree?
We've got to save our strength
Cause when you arrive at a cusp in time you've got to make your own decisions
You've got to make your own decisions

I get my vision from the pulsing of the earth
She's lain beneath my feet
She's lain beneath my feet

I don't wanna go chasing after silhouettes
All night, I've got to save my strength for my decisions
I don't want to go saving all my indecision
I've got to make my bad decisions

I get my vision from the pulsing of the earth,
She's lain beneath my feet
She's lain beneath my feet

Make bad decisions when my feet are off the ground
My head is in the clouds
My head is in the clouds

I don't wanna be laid down in the earth yet, like a silhouette
I am just a vision on the surface, I'm a silhouette
I don't wanna be laid down in the earth yet
I am just a vision on the surface

Luna

Written By: Eric W. Palmer

Shining like a light in the dark
You stay up late all alone
And I know

The way you light the way
All the way
To my door

Luna

Any yet you know just how to shake things up
Whenever you come around
I know
The way you're making waves
Day to day
On my shore

Luna
You've got me spinning 'round in circles
Luna
You've got me chasing silhouettes on purpose
Luna

You've got me spinning
and I'm never gonna stop
Make bad decisions
like it's going out of style

Hold On Tight

Written By: Eric Palmer

It’s twisting me inside
You never said don’t go
I was staring in your eyes lady
Baby hold on
I just need one reason to hold on

Hold on to that good life baby
My heart’s exploding and I’ve never seen a rough day

Hold on tight, you’ve got a good life
Hold on tight

Am I reaching for the dark side, or the light?
Don’t know
Because I’m asking all the time, which way?
I don’t know
I just need one way
To let go

Hold on to that good life baby
My heart’s exploding and I’ve never seen a rough day

Hold on tight, you’ve got a good life
Hold on tight

It’s twisting me inside
You never said don’t go
I was staring in your eyes lady
Baby hold on
I just need one reason to let go
And it’s twisting me up inside
It’s twisting me
It’s twisting me
Don’t make me have to tell you
Baby hold on
One more time, to let go

My heart’s exploding and I’ve never seen a rough day

Hold on tight, you’ve got a good life
Hold on tight

My heart’s exploding and I’ve never seen a rough day
Hold on to that good life baby
