I was not a fan of Future Island’s big album, Singles. It didn’t grab me. But this does.
Maybe because Samuel Herring’s vocals aren’t so in your face. Or perhaps now they have a full time drummer and sound more rounded. But there’s a new subtly that I found lacking in previous efforts, and it’s hooked me.
Ran is the first single from The Far Field, which is out now. And I’m loving it.
