Premiere: Futurecop! feat Kristine ‘Superheroes’ (Shields Remix) + Acoustic Version Free Downloads

Manchester synth duo Futurcop!, which consists of Manzur Iqbal and Peter Carrol, are preparing their debut album ‘Hopes, Dreams & Alienation’ this summer, but before that there’s the small matter of two new singles ‘Superheroes’ and ‘Misanthropist Wolf’.

The duo have made quite a name for themselves over the last couple of years with their sweet and sour synth pop, with releases on labels diverse as Southern Fried and IHEARTCOMIX.

The latest single ‘Superheroes’ is very much from the sugary end of the spectrum blending infectious synths with the velvety vocals from Kristine, who the duo met through the synthpop/dreamwave circuit.

The single is backed with a roughed up remix from revered French indie kids – Pony Pony Run Run, a scatty dance remix by Gold Top, a stunning synth pop remix by Azure Blue and also includes a stripped back acoustic version, which shows a mellower side to Futurecop!’s sound. The video that will be accompanying the new single has been directed by LA based Lauren Lille who made the experimental short The Caretaker.

We’re excited to be premiering both the acoustic version of ‘Superheroes’ and a funky remix from Newcastle trio Shields who have recently remixed Two Door Cinema Club amongst others.


Single: ‘Superheroes’ comes out 20th May.
Album: ‘Hopes, Dreams & Alienation’ is due to drop summer 2013.
