Future Islands – Beach Foam


Future Islands? Future Shock! As far as I can tell, it appears to be a trio based out of Baltimore, Maryland. Basic instruments used: Synth keyboards, Drum machine and bass guitar. One source described their style as "minimalist dancepunk, pop, lo-fi, post wave". The lead singer is Sam Herring and his voice is striking: sometimes it's gruff as he belts out some poignant refrain, at other times it's euphonious, even plaintive. Future Islands will move you. Beach Foam is from their 2008 album "Wave Like Home". I'm looking forward to their upcoming album "In Evening Air" (comes out on May 4). And they're in my hometown June 7th. Tickets go on sale in three weeks!
