Future Islands

I was wondering if there were any more fans out there.
They're vastly underrated, I always feel like they should have a ton more crazed fans than they actually do. Well, at least from where I am/what I've seen.

Anyway, if you haven't heard of them (not to be stereotypical) I think most people here would have an easier time listening to them because the main thing that, in my experience, has turned people off is the unusual quality of the voice (but I don't think it's as unconventional as Joanna's).
They're pretty much everything I look for in a musical group, no part is neglected. They have great-great-great-ohmygod-great synths (that sound like pink candy dripping off metallic joints it's so good), the vocalist is astounding, and they actually pay attention to beautiful words and lyrics.

I love them now. Thanks rainbowdash. They somewhat remind me of Suicide.

I've never heard of Suicide. Hurm.

Also great performance of one of their newer songs!
