Future Islands Blow David Letterman Away & Release New Video


Baltimore’s Future Islands made their network television debut last night on the David Letterman show and did not squander the opportunity, performing a powerful rendition of “Seasons” off their forthcoming LP Singles, out March 24th on 4AD Records. Frontman Samuel T. Herring’s performance is beyond impassioned (more than once he hits his chest with such conviction you can hear it in his mic) and leaves Letterman stunned, check it out below:

Not being a band to let momentum slide, the theatrical New Wave band then shared the animated video for Singles cut “A Dream Of You And Me” this morning as well, check out the Elena Johnston & William Cashion-directed video:

Personally all this makes me even more excited for the band’s already highly anticipated set at this year’s Savannah Stopover Festival. Trueblue will be there covering the weekend, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for that and all our other festival coverage. If you can’t make it down south for the fest, never fear because Future Islands is basically playing everywhere within “Indie Rock”‘s reach in the next few months in support of Singles. Check out the seemingly never-ending tour with Wye Oak and Ed Schrader’s Music Beat below, as well as the Singles album cover.
