This Future Islands Minidoc is the Perfect Sad-Piano 2014 Bookend

by James Rickman

The fact that the Future Islands' brilliant Letterman appearance happened way back in early March is really driving home that whole "where the fuck did the year go?" feeling. Fortunately, a minidoc of the band just surfaced, shot and directed Jay Buim, that captures a lot of quiet/blurry/sweet tour moments and a few shots of frontman Samuel T. Herring sweatily working his magic onstage. The seven-minute video also includes what must be the best pregame band-chant of all time, one that we've already started using before our editorial meetings: "1-2-3 WINNERS!"
