Future Islands: “Give Us The Wind”


I was about to write something about being “swung around in wild abandon in the light of the flames given off by ‘Give Us The Wind’”, but that sort of statement is entirely too earnest and revealing of my true corny character.  So instead, appearing cool and unmoving, I’ll say:

“Give Us The Wind” is the sort of tune I’d drive home from a great date with, learning lessons of wisdom and answers to temper any spirits threatening to escape from an undulating body.  Before celebrating in one’s own magnificent attractibility, and ability to make up passable vocabulary, Future Islands reminds us that the slow life, the one so often forced upon the unwilling, is the one most rewarding and fulfilling.

Bah,…still corny.

    Fantastic track. I’m really excited for the new album.

    I support the sentiment in spite of the corny-factor.

    Pretentious much?! Music should be listened to, not written about. Great track though.
