Future Islands - The Far Field

by Future Islands



This is Future Islands’ fifth studio album, including the Baltimore-based trio’s first single ‘Ran’. The Far Field refines and builds on the breakthroughs of their 2014 album Singles,bursting with undeniable hooks and disarmingly honest lyrics written by Samuel T. Herring(vocals, lyrics), William Cashion (bass, guitars) and Gerrit Welmers (keyboards, programming).

Across The Far Field’s twelve chest-pounding love songs and odes to the road, Future Islands brilliantly expresses the band’s central themes they’ve been exploring for the last decade: that there is power in emotional vulnerability, that one can find a way to laugh and cry in the same breath – and be stronger for it.
