    Future Islands

    A mate of a mate passed on this video to me.

    Future Islands blew me away! At first I thought it was Ricky Gervais taking the piss, but then I realised it was for real.

    I'm really into 80's music and this synthpop style suits me down to the ground.

    Check the video out and have a read on what The Guardian had to say about them.

    F*^king sings with passion and has a few moves too!

    is it the song "a dream of you and me "

    I d/loaded it with an indie rock collection a couple of months ago and it was a song I have kept to listen to - quite like it

    also was

    bear hands - giant
    I heart sharks - fools
    Ed zealous - diamonds for eyes

    I have found a few songs I have like by downloading "indie rock playlists" on bit torrent - though you have to wade through 150 songs of sh1t to find the good ones

    The songs called "Seasons (waiting on you)".

    They have a new album out called "Singles" that I have just downloaded, will come back in a day or so after I have listened to it.

    Pretty unknown at the moment, but think they are gonna do well.

    "A Dream of You and Me" is the last track of the album.

    Dig the tune, but the tour bus rear window must be always slimey and wet with that window licker of a lead singer. too much - hamming it up like that and destined to be a one hit wonder.

    ^ Cheers Dillinger. I didn't post the MV on purpose because I think most people would have said they sound like Kings of Leon and the like.

    I saw the MV first and then the live version after. My perception really changed of who I thought they were, and I thought it would be cool if I reversed it on you guys.

    It's nice enough but to compare them to the mighty kings or even Reef (who I saw live not that long ago) is libellous. Wash your mouths out.
