Near Future released their debut album Ideal Home on 25th May, 2018.
The collaboration between Blancmange’s Neil Arthur and solo electronic artist Jez Bernholz dates back a couple of years.
Files were swapped, sounds and lyrics re-wired, and Ideal Home is the gloriously minimal result. The album is icy and detached; beautiful and otherworldly; Bernholz’s spoken word monologue on ‘Dawn’ sounding like a warning signal from the subconscious, while digitised electronics usher in some of Neil Arthur’s most intimate vocals.
