Indie/electronic band Arkarna was formed in 1995 by Oliver Jacobs, James Barnett, and Lalo Creme (son of Lol Creme). Jacobs honed his production and songwriting skills at London-based Rollover Studios, founded by his father, Phillip Jacobs. “The Futures Overrated” was the second single taken from the group’s debut album, “Fresh Meat.” First released in 1997, the single was reissued the following year with new mixes.
