Future Islands has been hard at work steadily recording and performing since forming in 2006. Singles is the Baltimore based band's fourth album and no, it’s not a greatest hits compilation, rather it’s a release full of stunning new synth pop songs.
Warning: the vocals are desperately sincere and you may at first find yourself listening intently to each word as though it were being sung just for you.
Next may come the realisation that the melodies are pure pop bliss and the arrangements wondrously complimentary. It’s simply a very fine album indeed.
