About Future Islands

Future Islands is a new wave synthpop band based in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. The band is composed of Gerrit Welmers (keyboards and programming), William Cashion (bass, acoustic and electric guitars), and Samuel T. Herring (lyrics and vocals). Their sound has been described as "terse yet passionate music wrought from a stripped back palette," where "Gerrit Welmers' synthesizer melodies tumble across the austere wilderness of William Cashion's post-punk bass pulse, driven ever forward by ecstatic electronic rhythms".

LMFM Says: 
Tin Man is so fucking good if it's all they do in their musical career they still deserve to go down as one of the greats. With one of the nuttiest frontmen ever produced in Sam Herring (Who basically sounds like Brian Blessed and acts like Jack Black) they make for an intoxicating blend of weird.
