Live Video: Future Bible Heroes

Fearlessly dabbling in the gaudy with their electro pop sound, Future Bible Heroes began as a project of The Magnetic Fields’ Stephin Merritt and DJ Christopher Ewen, but gradually evolved into a substantial group of talented musicians. Eleven years after the release of their sophomore album, Eternal Youth, Future Bible Heroes are back with Partygoing. Maybe it takes a certain kind of humor to enjoy titles like “Keep Your Children in a Coma” and “Let’s Go to Sleep (And Never Come Back)”, but the fun is affirmed upon listening to the songs themselves, with lyrics like “If it’s not weird, it’s not romance.” Recently, the group -- sans Merritt, who is nursing an ailing ear -- graced KEXP with their dark sense of humor for a live set in our studio.
