Baltimore’s Future Islands are quickly emerging as the media darlings of a musical movement that some are calling post-wave and others are calling a return to the New Romantic sounds of 1980s Britain. (Hints of contemporary artists like Xiu Xiu and TV on the Radio also abound.) With its shimmering synth melody recalling Eno’s “Spider & I,” deep kicks, and male-female vocal contrasts, “In the Fall” is a near-perfect slice of melancholic electronic pop. Taken from their latest 12″ and recorded just weeks after completing their first album, the single is sure to win the trio many fans who lament the end of spring and its inevitable goodbyes.
