Dublin duo/trio Subplots ride their inner Foals on ‘Future Tense’, the second track they’ve given us from forthcoming album, Autumning. Phil Boughton and Daryl Chaney have been subplotting for a few years – debut album Nightcycles came out in 2009 – and they’ve now added a drummer and honed their sound to a, well, a future tense. The perfect pop length, the track is jittery and atmospheric, until it finds its feet and soars for the closing minute or so. There’s a hint of Last Days of 1984 there too, but it’s Foals to whom Subplots lean. Phil says: “‘Future Tense’ was one of the first songs written for the album, and went through a metamorphosis throughout recording. Our new drummer Ross Chaney had a big influence on the second half – shifting the feel of the song completely. It was one of the toughest songs to finish on the album but ultimately probably the one we’re proudest of.” You can download ‘Future Tense’ here, where you can also preorder Autumning, though, despite its name, it won’t be released until January. Subplots play the Pepper Canister Church with Luke ABbott on November 15.
