Trendsetter is thrilled to welcome Boston-based rockers Future Teens to the 2019 roster! Every good breakup record needs at least one self-doubting ballad, and today Future Teens have shared theirs in new track “So What.”

Get your favorite sweatpants on and call your boys Ben and Jerry; it’s officially Breakup Season. Don’t worry, though, because Future Teens will be your guide through all of the ups and downs on their infectious new album, Breakup Season, due out September 6 on Triple Crown Records.
As opposed to their last single, “Frequent Crier”––where vocalist Amy Hoffman went on about all the various places they’ve cried––on “So What,” vocalist Daniel Radin takes center stage as our unreliable narrator, pretending to smile through his everyday life in this relatable anthem of modern loneliness.
Upon first listen, “Frequent Crier,” much like the rest of Breakup Season, has delivered an undeniable windows-down summer jam. Start singing along, though, and you have this ultimate breakup anthem. It’s an impressive juxtaposition that Future Teens pulls off here, and when combined with Hoffman and Radin’s back-and-forth vocal style and literary songwriting approach, it makes for one of the most memorable indie pop records of the year.
Earlier this spring, Future Teens released “Emotional Bachelor,” a surprise singalong from Breakup Season about doing things that you know aren’t good for you. It’s the kind of song that stay stuck in your head for days, picking up right where their 2017 breakout album Hard Feelings left off.
With little aspiration outside of playing a Fourth of July BBQ years ago, Future Teens officially formed in 2014. In the subsequent years the band wrote and released more songs, steadily growing more serious about their goals. In 2017, they released Hard Feelings, their debut album full of unforgettable moments of romantic misadventure, miscommunication and mistakes.
