Corrections officers didn't stop as inmate was dying in back of van Baltimore synth-pop trio Future Islands put in years of hard work before its breakout, and to date has played more than 1, shows as a unit.
The emotional scars of their early days are still with the band members, according to singer Samuel T.

I kind of damaged it through singing incorrectly. I lost a ton on the top register — at least an octave, if not an octave and a half off the top. But I gained low and I gained grit and I gained character. Welmers, previously a guitarist, was on keyboards out of necessity, while Cashion was playing bass for the first time. Herring, who had experience in hip-hop, had never sung before, but a bond was forged. When those people see your record in a store or see you in a magazine, they say:
