The vivacious and extraordinarily talented Knapsack has just released his Futura EP. Filled with seven experimental tracks that range in genre, Knapsack creates an impressive atmosphere for listeners to engage with for this EP.
“Teenage Cloud Anthem” with Underscores opens the Futura EP with an all-encompassing feel that doesn’t leave any stones unturned. The tight-knit bass sits superbly with the percussive elements, while the synths and arpeggios dance around with the emotional vocal melodies. Knapsack keeps this inventiveness going through tracks like “Headache,” “620,” and “132_bubble loop.” To bring things to a stunning closing, Knapsack brings it home with the nasty “Nothing Less,” subtle “Send Her,” and futuristic “Matrix.” Futura is an EP that is best listened to when you can provide your full attention.
