"Comprised of J. Gerrit Welmers (synthesizers and programming), William Cashion (bass), and Samuel T. Herring (vocals), Future Islands has continued to make passionate music through an electronic medium for the past four years (although the three have been working and performing since the spring of 2003). They call their music 'Post-Wave,' taking in part from the emotional fragility of new wave and coupling it with the power and drive of post-punk. Their music is spearheaded by Welmers, whose layers of synths and drums create the landscape for Cashion's punching-strum style, that pulses and fights -- the two creating noise and bliss. Herring, who has been called 'one of the most magnetic frontmen in indie rock,' finds his space in between, carving through the music, at times, with a whispering croon, and at others with a deathly wail."
