This Baltimore based trio has been making music for almost a decade now, creating their own brand of new wave that combines the mighty vocal talents of front man Samuel T. Herring with bright and lush synths. Since the recent release of their latest album Singles, the band has received more airplay than ever before, and after a dynamic performance on The Late Show with David Letterman, the band went viral on YouTube.
Their new album features a collection of catchy and pop influenced songs without abandoning the immediately recognizable and powerful sound Future Islands is known for. The band recently stopped by Studio A to talk about the new record and play us some songs. We’ll hear that conversation and performance during this episode of FUV Live.
