Future Islands’ collaboration with producer Jones and Beach House’s Victoria Legrand, “Little Dreamer” was one of the most beautiful songs I had heard last year, and my introduction to the band. Hailing from Baltimore, by way of North Carolina, Future Islands is prepping an April 6th release of a four-song EP titled, In The Fall. The gorgeous title track was premiered at Stereogum earlier today.
The hazy, synth-laden track features additional ethereal crooning by Celebration‘s Katrina Ford. This is where Future Islands really shine. Like on their “Little Dreamers” remix with Victoria Legrand, lead singer Sam Herring’s voice is complemented beautifully by his empyrean co-star.
The trio’s sophomore album, In The Evening is out May 4th on Thrill Jokey. Like I said, The 12″ EP, In The Evening is out a month before on April 6th.
