Future Islands’ romantic synth sound scales new heights with ‘On The Water’, the Baltimore trio’s most ambitious and fully realized statement yet. Built around a song cycle exploring love, loss, and memory, their latest album finds the band continuing to deliver pounding rhythms, swelling melodies, and undeniable hooks - but finding new ways to probe inner space and tug at hearts.
‘On The Water’ was recorded by Chester Endersby Gwazda (producer of ‘In Evening Air’ and Dan Deacon’s ‘Bromst’), mastered by Sarah Register at The Lodge, and features guest appearances from Denny Bowen (Double Dagger, Dan Deacon) and Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak).
‘On The Water’ is an addictive ride that demands repeat listens, eagerly awaiting the test of time. To produce these results, Future Islands fleshed out its sound with the additions of cello, violin, marimba, and field recordings.
