Future Islands are a post-wave band from Baltimore. Their lead singer, Sam Herring, powers out haunting and gothic vocals with such ease. The funny thing though, despite his slightly demonic live presence he is quite the funny guy too! Watched him at Mercury Lounge last month and he has a killer stand-up set for any technical difficulties Future Islands face!
In creating a work which pretty much unfailingly sounds like it could have been made 25 years ago, Future Islands have rejected a lot of current sonic trends – only for their sound to land fashionable-side-up anyway. The song Inch of Dust is no exception! Listen to Inch of Dust by Future Islands!
