Album

The Far Field is the fifth studio album by American synthpop band Future Islands, released on April 7, 2017 through 4AD. Several parallels can be made between this studio album and the band's second studio album, In Evening Air: both are titled after the final volume of poetry by Theodore Roethke, and both have album art produced by former band member Kymia Nawabi. Thoughts on the new album The Far Field by synthpopalternative band Future Islands. I realize I accidentally referred to this as their 4th album, when it is in fact their 5th. The Far Field, Future Islands fifth album, skews towards the former. If Singles stepped up to meet the world, The Far Field mostly shrinks at its gaze. Future Islands have talked about the exhaustion and doubts that arose on their long tour, and this records insular focus plays like a protective shield. The scaffolding remains, but the upholstery is threadbare. Though the sound is familiar, the structures are less bombastic and their former gleam is somewhat muted. The Far Field is Future Islands' 5th album. The first single, Ran was released in January before the album release on April 7, 2017. The title for The Far Field comes from a poem of the same name by Theodore Roethke, as In Evening Air came from In Evening Air. The artwork for both albums was done by Kymia Nawabi-the painting on the cover of The Far Field is titled Chrysanthemum Trance. We took almost all of 2016 off just trying to write as many songs as we possibly could before we decided to record. We ended up getting around 24 demos written in that time and from those we chose which were the strongest pieces and recorded them in late November in Los Angeles. Album 2017 12 Songs. Bolstered by a notoriously great Letterman performance, Future Islands 2014 effort Singles was a breakthrough for the synth-pop romantics. The Far Field dives further into their sound, combining the expressiveness of soul with the leanness of post-punk and New Wave, underlined by immediate songwriting and the strong, vulnerable voice of Samuel T.

When Future Islands performed the soon-to-be smash single Seasons Waiting on You in March 2014, the band went viral in a way that indie rock bands didnt at that time and havent since. Frontman Samuel T. Herring captivated the world with his intensity, passion, and dated dance moves, and the band catapulted to the upper tier of indie rock, moving up to the top lines of festival billing and having their 4AD debut, Singles, land on the Billboard charts in the top 40. That constant push and exertion is the backbone for The Far Field, an album that finds the band coming to terms with the toll it can take on their lives. Future Islands' latest album is 'The Far Field. Tom Hines. On the fifth album from Baltimores Future Islands, frontman Samuel T. Herring continues to put a begging, pleading soulman spin on the moony affliction of the Cure and New Order slathering his gangly sandpaper croon all over songs like the dance-pop gallop Ran. The results are comically over-the-top but still warmly moving hes the kind of guy who can make the line we were the candles that lit up the snow on dusty roads seem poignant. Debbie Harry of Blondie swings by to help moan the tenderly gloomy Shadows, . Future Islands' 2014 album, Singles, was the moment when it all came together for them, musically, commercially, artistically. It had a handful of amazing singles, an overall sound that was sophisticated while wracked with emotion, a Chris Coady production that sanded off any sharp edges without feeling overdone, and Samuel T. Herring's brilliant vocals taking it all over the top to greatness. The band took three years before releasing its next album, The Far Field, and while it lacks the immediacy and shock of Singles, it feels like the work of a band looking to take another giant l.
