Future Islands @ Mohawk, Austin, 2011 (more by Tim Griffin)
Future Islands

Future Islands, now on 4AD and contiuing to blow up with a tour that hits Coachella, SXSW, Bowery Ballroom AND Webster Hall, just released a new video for new song "Seasons (Waiting On You)" from their new album Singles' (out March 25 on 4AD). The band writes:

The video is an honest and intimate look at the American heartland filmed in the Great Plains documenting a real life love story, the modern cowboy way of life, and capturing the landscapes that personify America. It follows a string of videos Buim has shot for the band ("Tin Man," "Balance," and "Grease") that convey the same sense of honesty, beauty and earnestness that are the cornerstones of Future Islands' music.

"For us, sometimes, it's quite spellbinding how Jay can translate our sound into an image" explains vocalist Samuel T. Herring, "Seasons (Waiting On You)", is a song about love, letting go, learning from your mistakes and always feeling that pull--yearning for a certain love, as time goes by and seasons change. It is simply a song about the human experience."

Do kids these days really love 80s sounding music? Don't get it with this band.

I thought the scene selection was the best part. The song seems to mediate on how some things, and people, change and then some appear to never change. The selection of a small Western town that is still holding on to beautiful traditions, in spite of the economic consequences (all the empty businesses, empty road, and trailer parks) is a perfect way to show that. The town and it's people are trying to retain their way of life, but forces larger than them (i.e. nature, economics, technology) are forcing a change regardless. But even within that dynamic, you find repeatable patterns, like people falling in love and raising children. Just like the seasons - change, but consistent change.
