It is difficult to match the showmanship of Dan Deacon, but Sam Herring and Future Islands did just that with an opening slot on Deacon’s recent Bromst tour.


Front man Herring exudes a Joe Cocker vibe that elevates the band’s sound to something altogether more soulful and unique than much of today’s run-of-the-mill synth-pop.


Joe Stakun’s video for Wave Like Home standout “Beach Foam” places the band in some sort of solarized screensaver baptism. The video is a good introduction to the band’s strange, hypnotic universe.
