From out of the flat grass comes the release of Baltimore's rising FUTURE ISLANDS latest album On the Water - their third LP and one of the recent biggest releases for Thrill Jockey in the USA. The crashing waves also wash in their debut Australian tour in late September.
"When seeking truth the answer is the road, when seeking wisdom the journey is your home."
Baltimore trio Future Islands' romantic synth sound scales new heights with third album On the Water, submerged currents of Simple Minds, Ultravox, Brian Eno, Japan, Talk Talk, David Bowie surface in their most ambitious and fully realized statement yet. Built around a song cycle exploring love, loss, and memory, the album finds the band continuing to deliver pounding rhythms, swelling melodies, and undeniable hooks finding new ways to probe inner space and tug at hearts.
A continual tide of touring across the US, Canada and Europe from 2006 at times with the likes of Dan Deacon, Okkervil River, Titus Andronicus, Javelin but more just coasting along the crest of their own wave has cascaded into an incoming tide of interest.
