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
Cause all we know, is gone and cold
I don't believe anymore
Don't grieve anymore
Cause 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
Cause what was gold, is gone and cold
I don't believe anymore
I won't grieve anymore
Cause 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
Cause what was gold, is gone and cold
I don't believe anymore
Don't believe anymore
Cause 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

maybe cuz another seatown RPster posted this pic, but damn and wow this looks a lot like one of my college party houses -  just north of 50th on Brooklyn....course they're all gone now w/ apartments up instead.

And maybe I'm one of the few that REALLy like Sam's voice....true I haven't listened to a full album as yet so maybe it get's tiresome when you flip the record? 

Long Live RP!!

The singer sounds like a cross between Bryan Ferry and Simon Bar Sinister.

                               what button do I push?                          yell ... yell ... shout             I can't really hear but I'm playing anyway
New Year's Day (U2) + A Forest (The Cure) + Shitty Voice = Future Islands
Another great RP-discovery. Thanks, Bill for spicing up my life.

This voice is so ugly and disturbing I had to stop cutting vegetables for fear I might cut myself.

Every song by them!! No vomit launch voices. Please.

 
The problem is that it just needed to be louder.  Careful.

And the Fine Young Cannibals.  Good things, IMO.


Well I like it...

Second that motion.  Every time it comes on I look up to see if it is something new from the x-bauhausien.
It seems record companies sign up groups/ singers that are "off from the norm", but they wear a bit thin quite quickly. If you see this guy performing that point may arrive even earlier.

Sounds like Marla Glen

 
Exactly my thoughts when I heard this first...
Strange vocals... but at least this guy doesn't sing just like everyone else.
Nice Bass Lines

I like FI's song in all its manifestations, including this one. It will get old, I predict, but for now it's fun.
 
It's already old.

Zero to antediluvian in under 10 seconds.
Well, that looks like it's the end of the Easter bunny.

exactly chord changes and tempo of U2's "New Years Day"

 
Yes, the same (3-chord) chord progression (different key) in the verses, different progression in the chorus.  When it comes to tempo, just about every Future Islands song has this tempo, and this one's tempo is faster than that of U2's song.
