Future Islands – Seasons (Waiting On You)

Future Islands

I doubt Sam Herring ever fishes for compliments, he just doesn’t seem to be that type of guy. And his band are the perfect template for building it up slowly, letting talent work its magic until one day the world knows you name. In most cases the breakthrough has a lot has got to do with luck but you don’t get signed to 4AD or perform on Letterman without first inspiring people to believe in what you do. And boy did Future Islands take the opportunity with both hands on their recent TV appearance (watch below). Actually no I’m wrong, 1/4 of the band did as drummer, guitarist and organ player barely looked up from their instruments. Herring on the other hand gave a performance that was as cringeworthy as it was awe inspiring. You just couldn’t take your eyes off the man as he painfully lived out the lyrics of ‘Seasons (Waiting On You)’ while moving like something from the animal kingdom (a stork I’m thinking). This was art as it was supposed to be, a strange antidote to the horrible ordinariness of modern life. Future Islands are presently about to disembark on the mainland – let’s hope they don’t lose themselves and what they are in the process. KD
