Baltimore-based, synthpop trio Future Islands makes their debut performance at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. Led by crooning frontman Samuel T. Herring, the members of Future Islands started out making electropop music together in 2003 while attending East Carolina University’s art program. Future Islands came to life after all three members – Samuel T. Herring (vocals), William Cashion (bass, guitars) and Gerrit Welmers (keyboards, programming) – had served their tenure in the overtly conceptual Art Lord & The Self-Portraits, a waggish band as comical as it was tender. Over a decade later, the now Baltimore-based trio have earned their stripes as one of music’s most quixotic and emotionally involving performers while maintaining an admirable level of skill and pace, never slowing for the corners. Their sound is at once beguiling and irresistible. It’s one part melancholic, one part euphoric; full of animated bass lines, robust drum machines and questing keyboards, all set off by Herring’s remarkably distinct, soaring vocals.
