“Is it love / Or love of the chase?” That’s the question on Sam Herring’s mind on their recently released “The Chase.”
Throughout 2014, Herring and the rest of Future Islands made the world notice their enthralling live shows, anchored by Herring’s fluid, powerful vocal performances. “Chase” does a wonderful job of showing off Herring’s increasingly great vocals, with the band’s victory lap in 2014 seemingly providing them with even more confidence than they already had. Put frankly, this new track finds Future Islands firing on all cylinders. They certainly seem to love the chase.
