We're only three months into 2014 and we already have our first great song of the year. Future Islands isn't a new band, but they've never had the type of buzz that they have now. And it all started with a fantastically honest performance on Letterman. Just try watching that without a huge smile on your face.
I got to see these dudes at SXSW last week and it was one of the most unstable and exuberant performance I've seen. I would have seen them 10 times if I could have. Future Islands is coming to Three Links on April 24. Do yourself a favor and go see them.
Singles is out March 25 on 4AD Records.
