Happy birthday to Armand Aviram of the electro band Future Relative.  The New York trio was the first band to step up to the plate and donate the proceeds of a recent concert to help aid Japan.  Inspiring!  For a limited time, you can visit the official Future Relative website (link is above) and download a free Future Relative EP entitled “Fantasies.”  This offer won’t last forever so hurry before this generous (and groovy) offer expires.  Happy birthday Armand!

Electro-pop gods Future Relative brought their irresistible dance grooves to New York’s Highline Ballroom on February 5, 2011 and what a show!  In a matter of months, the New York trio has gone from playing intimate venues to playing the Highline Ballroom, a venue that has been home to giants such as Amy Winehouse, La Roux and Recoil (featuring Alan Wilder of Depeche Mode). The band has a great stage presence and cool lighting, which includes their trademarked lit up and glowing microphone stand.  Their 45 minute set featured tracks from their EP “Fantasies” as well as a cover of IAMX’s “Nightlife.”  It was great to see the crowd dancing and getting sweaty in the dead of winter!

 I’ve been in love with their EP “Fantasies” for months and it was nice to be able to pick up the actual CD at the merch table after the show was over.  You can hear great songs such as “X-Ray Vision” and “Monday Morning” on the band’s MySpace page.  I think you’ll agree that the future of electro music is Future Relative!

The other day, after a great set at New York’s Mercury Lounge, I met Armand Aviram, lead singer of Future Relative.  The electropop band is looking to have a very wonderful 2011 and I am very excited for them.  Armand was super cool and I think the cool weather made me forget to tell him how much success I wish for him as well as thanking him for putting a quote of mine in the bio for his band!  I definitely plan to see Future Relative again, so perhaps I’ll just mention it then.  Thanks again Armand!

Armand Aviram of Future Relative

A few months ago, I wrote about electro-pop band Future Relative and I recommended you turn off the lights, blast their music and throw yourself a silent rave.  I wrote those words after only hearing their studio material.  They played an intimate show at New York’s Mercury Lounge on November 26, 2010 and they delivered the goods in concert.  When they hit the stage around 11 pm, all was dark except for a really cool microphone stand that lit up.  The trio played 45 minutes of dance music and everyone in the venue was loving it.  Lead singer Armand Aviram started singing and before long, the crowd was dancing and working off the Thanksgiving feasts we consumed the night before.  They played their future classics “X-Ray Vision,” “Monday Morning” and even played a nicely done cover of Bjork’s “Army of Me.”  A video of that will be coming soon, so stay tuned.  It might be hard to tell from these photos, but ladies and gays will have an added bonus when they see Future Relative live because they are all gorgeous.  This is definitely a band to watch in 2011 and I am excited to see and hear more from Future Relative.
