New Zealand’s The Beths make poppy punk with a ‘90s twist. Our song of the day, “Future Me Hates Me” is the title track for their upcoming debut album, out August 10. In the song, frontwoman Elizabeth Stokes (the only actual Beth in the band) sings of her readiness to jump into love, even if it only results in “Future heartbreak/ Future headaches/ Wide eyed nights late lying awake.” The song comes with an adorable video that sees the band watch a low-budget children’s play. Future Me Hates Me follows 2016’s Warm Blood EP, which was reissued on Carpark Records earlier this year.
