Futurecop embraces everything good about the '80s. "I'm in love with 1980s pop culture. My friends used to think it was really weird," Iqbal explains in an interview with Metro UK. "We absorbed so much of the culture in our formative years,' adds Carrol. 'Teen movies, sci-fi films and cartoons, the outrageous fashion, Cyndi Lauper. And we love the polished, synth-pop sound that defined the decade's music. It really shows in what we do now. Our sound is heavily influenced by that."
Check out a hot, little mash up they produced of their track "Fast Forward" and Ciara's smash "1-2 Step" to get a good taste of Futurecop! It's synthastic! Yummy.
