I remember falling in love with Future Islands for the first time last year, when I heard the song and saw the video for the stellar single “Tin Man” from the group’s sophomore effort In Evening Air. I’m thinking plenty of people will discover, or re-discover, their love for these Baltimore natives after watching the video for “Give Us The Wind,” one of the standout tracks from the group’s new album On The Water, which is out now on Thrill Jockey. It premiered yesterday on Spin. Watch the video below, and read Matt’s musings on the track here.
Grab the mp3 of “Give Us The Wind” from the great Swedish blog, Klubbace.se.
