32/365 Ran by Future Islands

32/365: “Ran” by Future Islands

I just listened to this song start to finish six straight times and I got the chills every single time. The music of Future Islands is so alive and overflowing with passion and urgency that it seems like a crime to give them anything other than your full attention. Today they announced The Far Field, a new full length album to be released on April 7th with “Ran” as the first single.

“And what’s a song without you?
When every song I write is about you
When I can’t hold myself without you
And I can’t change the day I found you”

Since starting Compact Discography in 2013, there is no artist I’ve written more about than Future Islands:
