This is a band called Future Islands…
They’re from Baltimore and have been around since about 2006. Oh, and David Letterman LOVES them.
If you’ve never heard/seen them perform, it’s pretty great.
Their sound is very different and strange, but it’s very cool and catchy. The best part of all is frontman, Samuel Herring. This guy is WILD.
He might remind you of Gord Downie a little bit because he has that theatrical and dominating stage presence. His dancing is out of this world.
Something else that’s pretty great about this band is how stone-faced the rest of them are when Samuel is absolutely givin’er out front. They look like extras in a movie! lol
This is a video of their performance on Letterman from 2014. Give it a watch. You won’t regret it…
