Just in time for Valentine’s Day, everyone’s favorite heartbreakers Future Teens have released a brand new version of their track “Swiped Out.” It’s the first from the band’s new Sensitive Sessions, a series of stripped-back reinventions of songs taken from their latest LP, Breakup Season.

“This version sounds a lot more like it did when it was initially written,” vocalist Amy Hoffman (they/them) explains of the more somber and lonely take on the track. Detailing the late-night liminal space where all you want to do is move forward but you don’t know how, this Sensitive Sessions version of “Swiped Out” takes Hoffman’s ache to an entirely new level.

"The Sensitive Sessions are an attempt to recapture the moments that the songs from Breakup Season were created in," Hoffman says. "Many of the songs were initially conceived of in quiet solitude, so when it came time to reimagine them for Sensitive Sessions, it felt like a chance to build something new on the existing structure of the song that would shine a different (and more sensitive) light on the lyrics and meaning."

The thing about Future Teens is that they just get you, no matter what you’re going through or where you’re at in your life or relationships. Every song on their latest album Breakup Season hits home, and hits hard, from the self-aware apathy of “Emotional Bachelor” to the windows-down anthem “Frequent Crier.”

Breakup Season is loaded with impressive juxtapositions between upbeat pop singalongs and gut-wrenching realness. It’s a feat that Future Teens pulls off impeccably; when combined with Hoffman (they/them) and Daniel Radin’s (he/him) back-and-forth vocal style and literary songwriting approach, plus the dynamic pop rhythm section made up of Maya Mortman (bass) and Colby Blauvelt (drums), it makes for one of the most memorable indie records of the year.

With little aspiration outside of playing a Fourth of July BBQ years ago, Future Teens officially formed in 2014. In the subsequent years the band wrote and released more songs, steadily growing more serious about their goals. In 2017, they released Hard Feelings, their debut album full of unforgettable moments of romantic misadventure, miscommunication and mistakes.
