The 2020 festival season is cancelled, I recently remembered one of my favourite moments ever which happened back in 2017 when I watched Future Islands at NOTTINGHAM Rock City the smallish venue. They were on the brink of their big breakthrough, the infamous Singles album has just been released and I finally got into their music. It was a triumphant show; I cried, I laughed, I moshed around – they never got better than in this moment and this summer but obviously, although Future Islands are still producing great alternative pop anthems. “For Sure” is such another great anthem and their first new single in three years. It’s catchy, it got that captivating groove, Sam Herrings warm vocal performance, Jenn Wasner from Wye Oak and backing vocals, and also a really great music video, directed by Sam Mason. It might look like a car commercial first but it turns into something more beautiful actually, something that isn’t actually worshipping technology despite the fact that cars are the protagonists here. Well, it’s pop poetry and that’s a an attribute that fits quite well to Future Islands.

‘For Sure’ by Future Islands, out now
