Future Islands are ready to take over the world. At SXSW, the Baltimore synthpop weirdos were this year’s Odd Future — the one live show that nobody could stop talking about. (This, even though they’ve been touring steadily and consistently great live for years.) And that chatter is only going to increase once people get a load of Singles, the band’s new album and one of the year’s best indie LPs. We’ve heard the early tracks “Seasons (Waiting On You)” and “A Dream Of You And Me,” and those both rule, but the whole album has been leaving my head spinning for weeks. And now you get to hear it, too, because it’s streaming below.
Singles is out 3/25 on 4AD.
