    Future Islands | NPR MUSIC LIVE

    1:19:30

    Ever since a video of Future Islands' thrilling performance on The Late Show With David Letterman went viral in March, the band has become one of the year's most exciting live acts, largely for the memorable and inimitable dance moves of frontman Samuel Herring. Herring's unaffected fashion style, sensible haircut and no-nonsense manners have led some to call him a normcore singer — an exceedingly normal artist. But his performances, and the often heartbreaking but bold songs he sings, are anything but conventional or staid.

    The band performed live at Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club on Thursday, May 1, as part of an NPR Music live video webstream.--ROBIN HILTON

    Future Islands - Vireos Eye

    4:06

    Baltimore's Future Islands stellar new-wavey track Vireo's Eye, off their LP release 'In Evening Air'.

    A loose, and hazy time
    When you were not my clementine
    And I was not your diamond's eye.

    Bereft, as daisies lie
    For our love was lost in style
    You were strong, I was a child.

    We, we're not kings here.
    We're not kings here.
    We're just strangers.

    And Love, has died in song
    Carried down by ancient tongues
    Ferried round the water's thrum
    And winds, along a line
    Along a whirl, a lonely girl

    To be, to see, to sweat, and bleed
    To fall, on your sword--on your sword
    On your word

    Be still, by my side
    For you are not my clementine
    And I am not your diamond's eye.
    To sleep!
    By right of you, I can't endure
    In light of things, I can't ignore
    In spite of all the rose's thorns,
    and hopeless words

    We, we're not kings here
    We're not kings here
    We're just strangers
    And angels.

    Lyrics:

    CAVE
    In parting ways
    And parting hearts
    A dress of leaves blows to the winds
    Take these sacrificial remnants—untended
    Bashed to dust
    And trust distressed
    Red cheeks—caved in
    ———
    I don’t believe anymore
    Don’t believe anymore
    Cuz all we know, is gone and cold
    I don’t believe anymore
    Don’t grieve anymore
    Cuz all I hold, is all I own
    ———
    Is this a desperate wish for dying?
    Or a wish that dying cease?
    The fear that keeps me going and going and going
    Is the same fear that brings me to my knees
    ———
    I don’t believe anymore
    Don’t believe anymore
    Cuz what was gold, is gone and cold
    I don’t believe anymore
    I won’t grieve anymore
    Cuz all we are, is bled and gone
    ———
    I am the air, the after
    Always in the clouds
    Searching for some answer
    Parted now, I am the shore—repeated
    Becoming air
    I’m finally free
    ———
    I don’t believe anymore
    Don’t believe anymore
    What I can’t see, can’t hold to me
    I don’t believe anymore
    I won’t grieve anymore
    Cuz what was gold, is gone and cold
    I don’t believe anymore
    Don’t believe anymore
    Cuz what was gold, is gone and cold
    I don’t believe anymore
    Don’t believe anymore
    I won’t grieve anymore
    Won’t grieve anymore
    For you
