Baltimore experimental electro pop band Future Islands signed to the classic label 4AD for their new album Singles. It's the band's fourth album overall, and they have a past history with the Chicago-based experimental label Thrill Jockey. The album is available as a full album stream this week from NPR Music.
NPR Music said "Captivating and confident songwriting coalesce with a troubling vision of fields once green and now fallow, falls from grace, and fading away. Honest and earnest when few asked for it; willing to bare their souls, no matter how abnormal they might be, in front of millions; searching for answers where there are probably none; and yet still ideal for an oblivious two-step."
Future Islands will tour this year, with almost 40 shows already booked. 4AD will release the album on March 24/25, and is about "Herring's deeply poetic tales of heartbreak, love, and loss are finally up front and in high fidelity, thanks in part to a newfound creative partnership with producer Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Grizzly Bear)" according their recording label.
