We are very happy to premiere ‘Capcom Girl,’ the new single by Bathroom Of The Future off the band’s upcoming EP ‘Everyone Else Here is Having Fun,’ out June 25.
Dealing with vocalist/guitarist Tim David’s inability to ever win when playing Street Fighter against his girlfriend, a fact he’s more impressed than upset by, the song is an absolute Ramonescore knockout while also staying true to the trio's usual geek flourishes. Yes, those are keyboards you hear.
Bathroom of the Future are three friends from Michigan doing the best they can. Consisting of Timothy David (vocals, guitar, and for the first time ever, keyboards), Sean Farquhar (bass and vocals), and James Layle (drums and vocals), Bathroom of the Future has been playing shows since 2015 and already got a chance to play with a number of their friends and heroes including Smoking Popes, Cybertronic Spree, The Ataris, Piebald, and more. In that time they’ve released two EPs and one full-length, appeared on a few charity compilations, and have gone on several tours of the Midwest and the East Coast.
The band themselves draws influence from the punk and emo bands they grew up listening to, such as Nerf Herder, Devo, The Get Up Kids, The Ataris, and Ozma, and they get compared to Weezer a lot, a fact they attribute to the fact that Tim also wears glasses.
“Everyone Else Here is Having Fun” was recorded by Tom Skill at Cow Haus Recording in Michigan, and was mixed and mastered by Mike Felumlee of Live at the Rock Room in spring of 2021. The two songs show the band expanding their self-described ‘nerd punk’ sound by exploring new instruments and melodic tendencies (as an excuse for Tim to try and teach himself to play keyboard last summer), combined with their trademark lyrics merging pop culture references with heartfelt descriptions of being sad and awkward about stuff, with vocals that a previous reviewer accurately described as “sarcastic”.
“Everyone Else Here is Having Fun” will be released on June 25, 2021 on CD, lathe cut records, and the usual streaming services.
