“Ran” by Future Islands

Future Islands enjoyed a bit of a breakthrough on their 2014 release Singles, thanks in large part to their single “Waiting on You.” For a band that previously abstracted their sound, it was refreshing to see them embrace a more energetic and hook-laden take– a premise that appears to be the basis for their latest album, The Far Field. With energetic drums from Michael Lowry, there’s a pulse to “Ran” that is perfectly adept to the urgent vocals of Samuel T. Herring.  The Far Field will be available beginning April 7 via 4AD.
