Baltimore synth-pop outfit Future Islands are emerging back on the scene with a single release. The single package contains two tracks, “Tomorrow”/”Fountain,” with the former being available for your streaming pleasure today. Along with the SoundCloud stream comes the following adequate description:
‘Tomorrow’ is a soulful swoon, its light tread is mesmerising amongst the slow burning synth cycles and relaxed bass progress. Samuel T. Herring’s ever-impressive vocal has never sounded more akin to Sam Cooke as he smoothly laments “I’m saying sorry every time we talk” before careening into a flight of sustained, arguably uncontrollable emotion. Some choice, additional vocals from Jenn Wasner (of Wye Oak), Lexie Mountain and Elena Johnston only make the song seem more impassioned; its ardent nature perfectly rendered into melody.
“Tomorrow”/”Fountain” will be available on September 3 via UPSET THE RHYTHM.
