/// RARE FUTURES (formerly known as HAPPY BODY SLOW BRAIN) is a GrooveRock band from New York City founded by journeyman multi-instrumentalist, Matt Fazzi. It began as a side-project in late 2007 while with the band Facing New York, later being placed on the back-burner officially when he left them to join Taking Back Sunday for a short stint from 2008 to mid-2010. Following that, Fazzi returned to the project as his main pursuit and under the original moniker, HAPPY BODY SLOW BRAIN, the band self-released a full-length, Dreams Of Water (2010) , and two EPs, SLEEPY (2012) and LIVE (2014) . Over the last several years while trying to establish HBSB, Fazzi has filled the gaps touring with groups such as RX Bandits, The Dear Hunter, Atlas Genius, Gavin Castleton Band, Envy On the Coast, NK (North Korea), The MovieLife, Into It Over It, and A Great Big Pile Of Leaves. In late 2015, he decided to fully refocus on his own music again with a renewed sense of spiritual purpose, a new record and a significant name change in mind. //// RARE FUTURES sound meshes heavy prog-rock groove with 80's synthesizers and layers of rich melody and harmony, tipping their hat to groups like Tears For Fears, Jellyfish, Mutemath, Sade, and Soundgarden. Their new album This Is Your Brain On Love was independently released on 3.25.16 via Fazzi's own label CMG Cerebral Music Group partnered with InTheClouds Records. The band is rounded out by seasoned veteran multi-instrumentalists, Ari Sadowitz (Model Decoy / Heavy English / Ben Kenney Band) and Rich Bozek (Side Saddle / Saber Tooth Trio / Diazepam), and longtime Happy Body Slow Brain bassist, Jason Holthouser.
