Future Islands – “The Far Field” [4AD]

Following up a breakthrough album, such as Singles, is not an easy task. Without trying to reinvent their successful synth-pop formula, Future Islands expound upon their uncanny energy and an alluring vocal delivery from Samuel T. Herring. As a result, The Far Field is a response to a previous album that peaked at #40 on the US Billboard chart, a response that digs deeper into the emotion that runs deep in their poignant and edifying music.
