Zero 7 - Futures

Its not for nothing that it is sometimes claimed that Zero 7 often come across as an English Air - particularly on this song, a subtle mix of acoustic warmth blended with icy electronica. The vocal performance by Jose Gonzalez is effortless and adds much to the track, with some beautiful melodies and harmonies and some gentle guitar that really drives the song forward.

It does lose its way somewhat at the end, dwindling down into knob-twiddling and delays, full of percussive beats and an abrupt conclusion on this radio edit. But with that put aside, the combination of earthy, simple guitar awash with keyboards really does work well.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
