Underrated Baltimore new wavers Future Islands are vivid, yet subtle storytellers in the matters of the heart and all its trappings. Their unique brand of pop is textured, dense and full of feeling. "Balance", the new single from the band's upcoming album, On The Water, attests to this in a very Robert Smith fashion. That is to say, it's quite good. Download it below:
