Current Obsession: Future Islands' "Seasons (Waiting On You)"
You know when you get so obsessed with a song you can't stop playing it? That's our case with FI's "Seasons".
Hey guys! Every once in a while, we'll share with you what we're listening to, and today we're bringing you the lead song off Future Islands' Singles -- their fourth studio album -- entitled "Seasons (Waiting On You)". Released as a single (pun intended) back in the beginning of March, the Baltimore alternative rockers made waves with their appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman, performing "Seasons" with lead singer Samuel T. Herring breaking out his best dance moves that piqued the interest of thousands of new fans:
How about those killer moves, right? Not to mention the song is catchy as ever, sounding like something between New Order and Phil Collins if they teamed up and put out a song in the 80's. We're really feeling the lyrical message of the track as well, which has the narrator wondering why it's so easy for seasons to change, but not people. "Seasons change / And I've tried hard just to soften you / Seasons change / But I've grown tired trying to change for you / Cuz I've been waiting on you", sings Herring with his signature throaty vocals, who's getting pretty sick of waiting around for the person in question to get their act together. Haven't we all been there?
