Future Romance is the conception of singer/songwriter Bec Birchall, a 20 year veteran of the Melbourne and Geelong scenes on guitar/keys/vocals alongside sister Claire Birchall in indie-rock groups Paper Planes, and Claire Birchall & The Phantom Hitchhikers.
Checking into Melbourne’s iconic Soundpark Studios in 2019, Birchall teamed up with Max Kensington (guitar), and longtime collaborators Jarrod Brown (drums) and Mark Brant (bass) to lay down an ambitious, inspired debut album, with release slated for some time in 2020.
The first taste of Future Romance arrived late in 2019 in the form of debut single ‘Want-You’ - a straight-shooting, up-tempo banger with 80s synth pop hooks, shredding guitar and a no-holds-barred view of modern romance.
Much like ‘Want-You’, new single ‘Not Beaten 4U’ pulls no punches. A gutsy girl-power anthem and scathing account of ‘done-me-wrong’ packed with big riffs and 80s rock diva attitude, ‘Not Beaten 4U’ celebrates the freedom in flipping the script, taking the power back, and unashamedly calling out the BS.
The ‘Not Beaten 4U’ single is OUT NOW on digital release.
