Future Husband

Amersfoort, Netherlands

Future Husband is Dutch-Nigerian singer-songwriter Adura Sulaiman. After years spent touring the world in other bands (Feng Suave, Sofie Winterson), Future Husband is the debut project of Adura Sulaiman. Listening to Future Husband is like floating in a hypnagogic state. The lines between dreaming and reality blur, a soft gradient painted over consciousness and abstract query emerging. Gossamer vocals interlace with floating guitars and soaring synths, with lyrics that take you into vivid, alternate landscapes. Loose composition and lyrical concepts were reshaped and recorded alongside bandmates/best friends Thomas Bosveld, Ivar Otten, Kike Zwagerman, and Twan de Roo. The tracks were further mixed in New York by Grammy award-winner Scott Jacoby (John Legend, Sia, Janelle Monáe, Coldplay).

With every listen, new textures and meanings seem to emerge. Perhaps it’s less so the music changing to the listener, but Future Husband requiring her audience to adapt to the music: a constantly evolving give and take. As she notes, “Every memory I have of my life is fluid; it changes over time. Especially when you work with your memories. So now I try to accept that everything is subject to change, even your mind, and that’s okay.”
