Future Islands’ breakout hit “Seasons (Waiting On You)” easily cracked the Stereogum staff’s favorite songs of the year list, it won two separate readers’ polls here, and yesterday a large swath of America’s music critics crowned it the best song of 2014. David Letterman is also a fan, and chances are, so are you. So please enjoy the following footage of Future Islands performing “Seasons” on Austin City Limits, a preview of this Saturday’s episode.
