It's been just over a month since everyone's favorite nostalgia-inducing duo Futurecop! released their amazing debut album Hopes, Dreams & Alienation, which easily made an appearance on our Top 30 Albums of 2013 list. Today they're building upon that momentum, back with a brand new single, Schizoid Man, featuring vocals courtesy of London's New Arcades. The track is a shining example of exactly what makes their sound so enthralling and style so unique — with shimmering dreamwave synths and weighty electro beats lighting up a chorus of flawless pop vocals, coming together as a pristine slice of big 80s influenced vibes akin to a timeless daydream. The UK retro champions have shown us, yet again, just how infectious living with the wonders of the past, while looking toward the possibilities of the future, can be. Kick the volume up to full and hit play on the premiere below!

Up next, be on the lookout for much more from Futurecop! very soon, as they're already at work on their next album, and are set to launch their very own label. The new album will take influence from some of their favorite things like 80s cartoons, video games, and nostalgic movies — seeing the guys take things back to their beginnings, with songs set to a lo-fi, shoegaze, and indie backdrop rather than the dance oriented nature of their latest effort. WE ARE THE FUTURE, their label soon to take shape, will be dreamwave & dreampop focused with an aim to show the world the beauty of that music, and a way sign and promote friends with a likeminded love for the scene. We for one can't wait to see it all, so stay tuned!
