The Hutchison brothers from Frightened Rabbit have teamed up with Editors guitarist Justin Lockey and his brother James from Minor Victories to form the brilliantly titled (for those of a certain age) Mastersystem. Their new band have now dropped ‘Notes on a Life Not Quite Lived’; the first song from debut album Dance Music (our via Physical Education on 6 April) and it’s a fuzzy slice of indie-rock with a big, soaring chorus and visceral lyrics that range from the future falling to its knees to a declaration of ‘I’m a future king’.
Mastersystem will be playing the following tour dates:
Wed, 25 – Manchester, The Deaf Institute
Thu, 26 – Newcastle upon Tyne, The Cluny
Fri, 27 – Glasgow, The Art School
Sat, 28 – Leeds, Brudenell Social Club
Mon, 30 – Birmingham, Birmingham O2 Institute 3
Tue, 1 – London, Oslo
