Future Islands are a band whose brilliance has always been hiding in plain sight.
One viral moment might have catapulted them to worldwide recognition, but they were just doing what they always did – pouring their heart and soul into every moment, and channelling art’s great power to spread love and hope. It was, quite simply, who they are. Yet success is a fickle beast. Burn out, self-doubt, wrestling with expectations; Future Islands have been through them all and emerged with their forthcoming album As Long As You Are, an album all about trust, and one that triumphantly begins their third act.
