Written and recorded in 2007, ‘Tomorrow’s World’ is a trip in time to the future of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. More Sinclair C5 than Lamborghini, it takes its primary inspiration from the science and computer TV programming of that era, reflecting a period in which breath-taking advances in technology were viewed with equal parts utopian optimism and nuclear-fuelled fear.

Whatever happened to tomorrow’s world?

This newly remastered edition is released in physical format for the first time, featuring brand new cover artwork, on cassette tape (available in two colour choices - black or transparent blue) with extended inlay art panels housed in a clear case.

Reviews

"All ten tracks are just flawlessly executed, sounding indistinguishable from the real thing ... There’s clearly some amount of irony in certain places - the synth bursts atop a bouncy bass line on ‘Travelling Hopefully’ somehow seem laugh out loud when picturing the British Rail training video they easily could have scored - but swathes are earnestly composed synth jams ... Towards the second half of the album, tunes like ‘Tomorrow's Babies’ and ‘Outer Space’ get a bit stranger with swift whooshing edits and effects shooting the cheesy drum machines and synths into dubbier space. Joyous escapism back to a time when futurism was often still blissfully ignorant." Tristan Bath - The Quietus
