New music always has potential, it's whether or not it's stimulating. Future Islands is capitalizing on that power as they posses the ability to command attention. Earlier this spring they released, "The Chase." This single put words around the questionable momentum of a relationship. There's still that recognizable whirl of melodic redundancies that help to cool the senses—a helpful contrast to the theatrical delivery of the vocals. The B side, "Haunted By You," reaches at companionship or interaction, like feeling your way in the dark. The surroundings may be familiar, but not without hazard. Future Islands play September 25th at the Fox Theater in Oakland. Enjoy the clip below.
