Future Islands are a band who are perhaps a little underrated. But they are completely excellent in their unconventionality, releasing one of my personal favourite records from last year, In Evening Air. They return with a new single on July 18, which is a while away yet, but you can download it entirely for free.
It's called 'Before The Bridge' and is released through Thrill Jockey, and is also backed by 'Find Love'. It will be released as a limited edition 7", by the way, but the way to download it is by clicking here. Artwork below, too.
The band are off on an extensive European tour soon, but they do have the solitary show in England. That's at Plan B on Saturday July 9, by the way.
