Letterman’s Turned Future Islands’ Performance Into A Meme

Earlier this week, Future Islands performed for the first time on the Late Show With David Letterman, and they absolutely ripped shit, eliciting straight-up giggling glee from Letterman himself. And Letterman has not forgotten it. He called back to it during last night’s monologue a couple of times, without context, just yelling “Let’s dance!” And whoever runs his Tumblr also posted the gif above recently. Let’s just keep this going, OK? If it makes Future Islands famous, it’s worth it. Watch the monologue below.

Lest we forget, Future Islands’ new album Singles is out 3/25 on 4AD.
