Amoeba Review

04/05/2017

With its uplifting rhythm and melancholic mood, Future Islands' latest album is a consistent follow-up to the excellent Singles, which launched them into the mainstream's attention in 2014. Although the album is called The Far Field, the band hasn't strayed too far from their familiar territory, even while using their live drummer for the first time in the studio and adding some string arrangements. The result, thankfully, is more emotionally resonant and catchy synth-pop anthems with minimal, effective post-punk bass, atmospheric synths, and Samuel Herring's uniquely affecting vocals, which belong somewhere between the walls of Factory Records and the mountains of Middle Earth.
