British super-electropop duo Futurecop!, launched “Lost Love” onto YouTube videowaves to transport us all back in time the days of Jherri Curls and neon clothing. This dreamy tune uses a metric ton of synthesizer modulation and sweeps to create a feel of nostalgia throughout the piece. I feel like I’m Claire Standish from The Breakfast Club when I listen to Futurecop! There is such a strong influence of the 1980s in their music, I can’t help but transport back to the era of legwarmers.
Although Futurecop! recently released their first full-length album in early 2012, “Lost Love” was not featured on The Movie. This is their first release of 2013 and though they haven’t officially released details about another full length album, I’m sure that soon enough Futurecop! will leak more music that pushes us through time.- Arianna Aviram
