Future Islands – Ran

It took an eccentric, chest-beating performance on Letterman to open people’s eyes to Future Islands’ sticky appeal. Slow and methodical, against drums that beat like a throbbing heart, people found solace in Future Islands’ emotive sound. Or maybe just stopped to stare and listen to Sam Herring’s ghoulish voice.

But since their rise in 2014, we haven’t heard any new music from the trio. Until now, after the band released a single from its upcoming album, The Far Field.

Ran, the new single, fits nicely into Future Islands’ gothic past, opening with a sweet, ambient soundscape, before turning to ascend into the oxygen depleted realms of the high country.
