From being 18-year-old kids playing house parties in Greenville, North Carolina, to last month's nationwide broadcast on The Late Show with David Letterman that made them internet superstars — throughout it all, Future Islands have always stayed true to themselves, and to their strong work ethic. After spending nearly five years straight on the road, they finally allowed themselves to take a break in 2013, resulting in their strongest album yet, Singles, out now on 4AD Records. "We knew it was an arrogant title," laughs frontman Samuel T. Herring, "But I also think it's a confident title." See for yourself why they have every reason to be confident with their KEXP in-studio session below:
