Those that know me well know how much of a mega-fan I am when it comes to Baltimore’s Future Islands. I was wild with elation when the band, lead by dance-fanatic and versatile musician Samuel T. Herring, broke out big with their album Singles a few years ago. As such, I’ve been enjoying Calliope, a surprise return by the synthwave and synthpop band and a one-off contribution to Adult Swim’s Singles series. I can already picture Sam dancing to the song’s perky beats and epic melody live. A lot of times, I find that these one-off contributions tend to be a bit lacking compared to an artist or band’s usual releases. That certainly isn’t so when it comes to Future Islands and Calliope. The single is available from Adult Swim, here.
