Hit of the week: Future Islands ‘For Sure’

Synthpop heroes Future Islands are back with their first new song in three years. The track is called “For Sure” and it sees the Baltimore band teaming up with Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak, a pairing that sounds seamless in practice.

“For Sure” is a soaring number that feels like you’re being filled with hope — something we could certainly use a little more of this year. Armed with their usual blend of synthpop, nonstop drums, and big choral hooks, Future Islands push their moody music to new heights here thanks to Wasner’s soft harmonies.
