Future Fridays is the indie pop project of Sari Breznau and Eric Padget. Sari is a former member of the Circus Contraption and both Sari and Eric play in the Balkan brass band Orkestar Zirkonium. But, Future Fridays is nothing like either project. Infectious indie pop, quirky songwriting and duelling male/female vocals. Who could ask for more? Check out “Dream Big” on their Bandcamp page.
