The Future Crayon is a compendium of early EP tracks and B-sides, along with rare compilation tracks that plays through like a concise summary of their music to date. Through the deeply intricate orchestral compositions and the unmistakably glassy vocal work of Trish Keenan, this treasure chest is the perfect introduction to Broadcast’s singular form of indie electronica.
Cuts like Illumination and Unchanging Window embody their fusion of melancholia and unease. Even the more ambient instrumentally-led cuts like Locusts and DDL carry that same sense of exploratory symphony.
Always delivered with a streak of honest pathos and emotional authenticity, this is a collection of gems from Broadcast’s prolific output.
