Future Islands - Ran

| Keith
Ingest, where it goes
Nobody sees but me
So perfect and so sweet
But the rest feels incomplete
Oh like the rabbit's foot I keep
In the locket with no key

I'm really digging "Ran", the latest single from Future Islands. It's was one of those "instantly hooked" tracks. Now, I'm a big fan of Future Islands and, I think mostly due to Samuel Herring's unique vocal stylings, but also because they've taken some of the musical tropes from the more obscure 80's bands—think Spandau Ballet, Ultravox, Visage and the like—and polished that sound up for a more modern feel. Anyway, it's always cool to hear new music from a band you're into and just get it right away. I'm excited for their new album, The Far Field, to arrive.
