Why See Future Islands?
So Perfect and So Sweet
Up until 2014, Future Islands were an acclaimed, but lesser known synth-pop band from Baltimore, but that all changed with their appearance on David Letterman's Late Show. Not only was lead singer Samuel Herring's dancing the stuff that memes' dreams are made of, but the song they played, 'Seasons (Waiting on You)', was obviously something special. Later named by Pitchfork as the best track of the year, 'Seasons' proved to be the band's breakthrough, and they now stand as one of the indie world's most respected groups.
2017 sees the release of the band's latest record, The Far Field, which boasts bucket loads of indelible melodies, swelling bass lines, and Herring's impassioned vocals. Catch Future Islands, who are truly one of alternative music's must see live acts, when they play The National in Richmond, VA, September 5, 2017.
