They became fast friends and were soon waxing synth songs, huffing gasoline and making shred tents. Now consisting of Jean Jeanie (gtr/vox/field recordings), Antonio Roman-Alcala (drums), William Cotton (rhythm & bass), and Dan Kennedy (synths & bass).

From Terrorbird: "their music juxtaposes a tangible beauty with an honest grit that can only come from a band birthed and breathing in San Francisco's Mission District.
In addition to performing and recording, Future Twin creates various situations from inciting groups of people to obscure their identity in public places, championing public art projects such as murals and guerilla-style outdoor music shows, and sowing the occasional renegade farm on institution occupied land. In other words, "Giving a shit is the new not giving a shit," according to Jeanie.
The name Future Twin comes from artist and muse, Yukako Ezoe (Lockits co-founder who works as long standing SF-based mural non-profit Precita Eyes). The concept behind the name is about imagining the type of person you want to become, and designing your life towards her or him. Taking notes from the likes of Sonic Youth, Fleetwood Mac, Animals and Men, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Spiritualized, 90's punk band Hickey, CAVE and others, Future Twin draw inspiration and influence from disparate sources. And since the band's inception, situations have transpired, people were motivated to get up or get out, landslides shifted the conceptual mindscape...but adaptive by design, their pirate ship keeps sailing. "We design our lives towards who we want to be, becoming our own future twin," Jeanie declares. And their music, no doubt, embodies that sentiment."
