Track of the Day: Future Haunts “Far Away” (2019)

With a new EP due in 2020, Brisbane’s Future Haunts have released another little teaser of what’s to come! “Far Away” is the third glimpse we’ve had of the upcoming Rushmore, and we’re loving it!

Vocalist and guitarist Ben Speight says:

“‘Far Away’ takes a dive into themes of distance and being away from your loved ones for a long time. It’s about being stuck half way around the world and not being able to connect with your surroundings. I wrote it when I was trapped in an airport delayed for an entire day with nowhere to go, nobody to talk to and so close yet far away from home.”

“Far Away” comes after a standout showcase at BIGSOUND 2019, and will join previous singles “Weather Vane” and “Fall In Line” on the forthcoming second EP.

Give it a spin below!

Brisbane fans can catch Future Haunts at Black Bear Lodge this weekend, supporting Sydney’s Planet. All the info you’ll need is right here.
