Listen to Future Islands' Aggressive Mourning on New Single "Cave"

New MusicWeston PaganoComment

Future Islands' forthcoming 5th full-length The Far Field is one of 2017's most anticipated releases, and, following "Ran," we now have a second single to hold us over until April 7.

"Cave" prowls the deeper, darker side to Future Islands' pulsing synthscapes as Sam Herring growls "I don't believe anymore" with increasing severity. Those lucky enough to have seen the track performed live in recent weeks can attest that it's already a deserving set staple, with its vein-popping SXSW displays readily proving its place alongside "Tin Man" and "Seasons (Waiting On You)."

The accompanying lyric video is unique in that it's conveyed solely through ASL via New York City mayor Bill De Blasio’s fittingly expressive sign language interpreter Jonathan Lamberton. Though not quite to the level of a certain Letterman performance, Lamberton's signing has had its own viral fame.
