Kid Future, The Cellar Seas, Thomas Costello 

When: Thu., July 15, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $3

"Open your windows," Kid Future frontman Bryan Costello commands on "Like a Camera," as though imploring you to experience their burbling indie synth pop. The music lilts and drifts, reminiscent of '80s acts like New Order, but more sedate and dreamy.

The trio formed six months ago after Costello followed his brother Thomas to Raleigh after a couple years at Appalachian State. Drawn by friends and a job opportunity working for a soccer magazine, he kicked around in a variety of outfits before starting Kid Future. (He also plays in his brother's band, Mount Weather.) He cites locals The Love Language and Light Pines as big inspirations that helped foment his current direction.

"I finally started writing music I was pleased with by simplifying everything. I like to write stuff that's very catchy and has simple underlying components to it," Costello explains. "For me it's about creating a mood, and, for me, the easiest way to do that is to build simple parts." With the aforementioned brother Thomas and Raleigh newcomers The Cellar Seas. —Chris Parker
