Baltimore’s Future Islands are about to embark of a pretty hefty tour, but before doing so listen to their new single “Before The Bridge” so you know you have a reason to hear these heart drenching new wave synth pop songs. Starting with a killer guitar riff, that’s actually quite subtle – but it builds up the song’s romantic aim so effortlessly. And not too soon after the thumping bassline, drum machine and vocals kick in spinning you around into a a dead white landscape of hearts frozen in time during the Arctic Ice Age. The song paints such a stunning image. “Do you believe in love? Do you believe in love? Hold your tongue, hold your tongue” echoes in the song. Well, do you?
Head over to their website to see them on tour.
