The Farewell Drifters have been called “the best of what’s next” by Paste Magazine and possessing of an “exuberant musical intelligence” by No Depression. On their Compass Records debut, TOMORROW FOREVER, the band takes another musical leap forward solidifying their place among the important bands emerging in the wake of the neo-folk path blazed by the Avett Brothers, Mumford and Sons and Fleet Foxes. The new album was produced by pop-roots specialist Neilson Hubbard (Matthew Perryman Jones, the Apache Relay, Glen Philips) and showcases the Drifters’ Brian Wilson-esque pop sensibility, crystalline harmonies and folk foundations alongside gutsy electric guitar and orchestral-style drums. The stomping title track, the anthemic album opener “Modern Age” and the catchy “Bring ‘em Back Around” all support the album’s over-arching theme—a hopeful look at the future and the importance of always seeking the silver lining.
