Future Islands crashed into our lives this year following their EPIC David Letterman performance. We honestly don’t know how they’ve gone under the radar for so long. Their debut breakthrough track ‘Waiting On You’ is awesome. But it turns out the rest of their music catalogue is well worth a listen.
Future Islands is a synthpop band based in Baltimore, Maryland, signed to 4AD. The band is composed of Gerrit Welmers (keyboards and programming), William Cashion (bass, acoustic and electric guitars), and Samuel T. Herring (lyrics and vocals).
