Future of the Left – I Am the Least of Your Problems
The Plot Against Common Sense is imminent, and as such, one of our absolute favourite bands have decided to reveal another song from the forthcoming 15-track opus. It is not yet known whether I Am the Least of Your Problems will be the second single to be taken from Future of the Left’s [Twitter/Facebook] third album – which is now due out on June 11th, pushed back a fortnight from its original release date of May 28th – but it should certainly be made so, as it would do a lot to ramp up anticipation for the album. It’s punchy and aggressive, deceptively straightforward too, but it contains a riff that one will find impossible to dislodge from one’s head upon hearing it, and it’s extremely replayable; even though it’s a shade over 2:30 long, one listen just won’t be enough. We’ve been hammering it all weekend since it made its premiere on Friday evening, and can certainly say it’s the most accessible FotL have sounded in a while. Granted, they’ve always had brilliant riffs up their sleeve, but the one that kicks this song off is an absolute cracker. As usual, Falco is on form with his lyrics, too: ‘I get the point of missing you: no-one else will do it for me / I am the least of your problems, but I don’t mind.’ Could June just get here now, please? We can’t wait to hear more.
