Felix and the Future
Holy Hands Vol. 2 (Self-released)
Blending past-embracing tribal imagery with future-facing space age sound, Felix and the Future’s music spins stories about searching the Earth and chasing false idols. The surrealist, Mexican-American pop artist confronts characters such as “Karen” (the title character of the record’s incredible first single and video) who battle being lost in the blackness of doubt and uncertainty. But not all is doom and gloom in Felix’s world. Citing Kate Bush, Klaus Nomi, Bjork and The Knife among its biggest influences, Holy Hands Vol. 2 explores sexuality and curiosity on tracks like the album’s ear-catching highlight, “Schoolboy.” To join in on Felix’s fascinating journey, visit his Instagram @futurefelix.
