Track of the Week Future Islands


I've been unable to stop myself listening to the Future Islands latest album 'The Far Field' for a while now. It's becoming a problem. I find myself unable to listen to anything else. I can't stop my feet tapping to its infectious beats, my finger tapping the play button on the album rather than the hundreds of other albums in my Spotify music library. I play it on repeat. I play it in my sleep. I wake with it in my head. I play it on shuffle just so that I don't know what's coming next. But still I don't stop. To quote Sam T. Herring, the Future Islands front man...

freezing rain can’t keep me away

So what can be done about it? Just keep listening? Just keep dancing.

My track of the week is 'North Star' although it could've been all of them --->
