Future Islands

Led by crooning frontman Samuel T. Herring, the members of Future Islands started out making electro-pop music together in 2003 while attending East Carolina University's art program. Along with Herring, the initial members of the group were Adam Beeby, William Cashion, J. Gerrit Welmers, and Kymia Nawabi, and they played shows around campus as Art Lord & the Self-Portraits. In 2006, after the band split, Herring, Cashion, and Welmers continued under the name Future Islands and picked up the Kickass bassist Erick Murillo to round out the low end. The band released a few CD-Rs, splits, and cassettes before Murillo moved in a more indie rock direction, and relocated to Baltimore with the encouragement of Dan Deacon. His producer, Chester Endersby Gwazda, recorded Future Islands' debut, Wave Like Home, in 2008, and he continued to work with the band for 2010's In the Fall EP and the full-lengths In Evening Air and 2011's On the Water, which were released by Thrill Jockey. After releasing a couple of singles in 2012, the band remained relatively quiet until the announcement in late 2013 that they had signed with legendary indie label 4AD. Their first album for the label, 2014's Singles, was a streamlined, very accessible synth pop album produced by the prolific Chris Coady. The band caused a bit of a ripple within the indie rock community when their performance of one of the album's highlights, "Seasons (Waiting on You)" on Late Night with David Letterman left the host dazzled and near speechless. ~ Jason Lymangrover

Bumfucks like imagine dragons, have over one hundred thousand likes, and these guys don't have one thousand, is total testament of the disparity of what's popular.
Fools, are popular, and fools are the populous.

Excellent music on Close to None. It's the first song I've heard from this group, but the vocals are so off. There's no harmony between his singing and the music. He shouts the lyrics and all emotion is lost if any is even being expressed. It's lost, try again guys with another vocalist.

You can't help but not be drawn into them. Their Letterman appearance had me hooked!!!! So unique and groovy, you can't help but want to dance along. Love them!!!!:)

I was drawn to Future Islands by their unique so called faux aristocratic vocals, I've grown to truly love this band.

I just discovered these guys only weeks ago and I'm hooked. I live in Miami Beach and sadly they're not coming down here anytime soon, but they are going to be in my hometown of Fargo, ND soon! Can't believe it! All my Fargo peeps better attend! And I've been telling all my other friends on the upper west coast in the Portland area to go see them as well. Congrats on the huge tour guys! Just remember you have fans in MIAMI!

I would totally disagree with the word, crooning used to describe Sammuel, to be honest, he's the complete opposite if you've ever seen them live. He's so loud and full of energy, just my opinion

These guys make soundtracks to bittersweet, nostalgic dreams, but still stay fun and bouncy.
