Future Of What is the Brooklyn-based pop trio of Blair Gimma, Sam Axelrod, and Max Kotelchuck. Blair’s distinct voice, low-key and beautiful in its simplicity, may be familiar from her previous solo/guitar-based project (also called Blair). Like much of our favorite pop music, there are some strong nostalgic vibes kicking around in the subject matter of these songs, and when you pair that with tastefully minimal, sharp production, it’s a winning combination. The band stopped by to share some songs, talk about the recording process (including their muse), and to investigate the case of Maia’s missing Casio keyboard.
Featured song: “Double Thoughts”
