Love Future Islands, great live show
I really did not enjoy the live show of theirs I saw actually, was a big fun but it felt like a completely different band live

Big fan - caught them live at Brighton Dome after finding tickets they'd left in the gardens during the day. It was a really great show, long too. I think they played 25/26 songs. Brighton audiences can be frustratingly still and quiet but everyone was into it that night. The only question I left with was why does the lead singer do that weird screaming during most songs live? It doesn't fit their style and can't be good for his voice

Their song 'Doves' is an absolute beast live. Their song with Debbie Harry is also great.

That weird screaming really turned me off from them. I really enjoyed their tunes and was looking forward to seeing them at Roo 17 and that just completely ruined the show for me. Their albums are still solid but can't go see them live.

I wouldn't say it was enough to ruin the experience for me but I did think it was odd, I'm hoping to catch them live again at some point in the future!

This thread has rekindled my obsession with this particular gem, I'd absolutely love to catch this live with a horn section :cheesy:
