Future Womb is the brainchild of multidisciplinary Calgary artist, Mikaela Cochrane. With collaborators Jordan Moe (guitar) and Michael De Souza (bass) of local folkadelic quintet The Ashley Hundred, and Andrew Ellergodt of Andrew’s Pale Horses, bringing the groove, this new project's eclectic sound will keep you guessing. Despite only forming in Summer 2017, Future Womb has performed at a number of Alberta festivals, as well as in live sessions on both CKUA radio's The Spot and CJSW radio's Suffragette City. Their debut full-length album, BABYGIRLGALACTIC is currently in the works with Mikaela's brother and mentor, Taylor Cochrane (Musician behind 36?, Jason Famous & Le Fame, Fuck Boy), as producer.
BABYGIRLGALACTIC is an eleven track autobiographical concept album exploring the sexual and relationship trauma that Mikaela experienced over the four years that this album documents. The name comes from the feeling she had of fitting into a role of an obedient and palatable woman, while also recognizing the infinite potential inside herself to be so much more; the frustration, humiliation, and illusion of power in the choice to stay small.
"Captivating audiences with her pure voice, dark lyrics, eccentric costumes and makeup, and dramatic stage presence, Future Womb quashes the belief that music is just an auditory experience -- which is largely a result of Cochrane's background in acting, musical theatre, and burlesque." - [Laurel McLean, Local Drop; Issue 7, September 2018]
