Like many people, including my brother in law Nik Sutherland and Guardian blogger Tim Jonze I was sideswiped by this completely unexpected discovery on the David Letterman Show. A desperately badly named band called Future Islands; but what a song this is and what a performance.
This is the single best musical interpretation of a song that I’ve seen since, Oh I don’t know, ever?
Frontman Samuel T. Herring (great name unlike the band’s) looks like a young Marlon Brando ripping the guts out of a tortured Shakespearian soliloque whilst student-dancing in a low ceilinged room.
It’s frankly miraculous.
And if you like that try his Gary Numan look in this Tiny Desk Concert…
