Future Islands- "Tomorrow"

New MusicDannySpitsComment

Following last year's On the Water LP, Baltimore synth pop band Future Islands has a new single on the way. "Tomorrow," the A-side from the single, is available to stream via the SoundCloud widget above.

In a way, Future Islands is the antithesis to their contemporaries; with the indiesphere currently so heavily saturated in detached, understated synth pop, the group's dramatic take on the genre feels like a breath of fresh air. With its appropriately large reverb, pulsating rhythms, female background vocals, and singer Sam Herring's uniquely soulful delivery, "Tomorrow" is no exception to this. Its inspiring effect is a testament to Future Islands' talent for creating powerful, arena-sized pop music that is dripping in personality.
