Baltimore’s favorite synth-pop trio (quartet now that they’ve added
Roomrunner’s Denny Bowen Michael Lowry on drums) absolutely killed it on their late night television debut last night, performing “Seasons (Waiting on You)” on the Late Show with David Letterman.
During the obligatory handshake session after the song, Letterman seemed to express genuine excitement about the band, saying “How ’bout that?! I’ll take all of that you got! Future Islands! That was wonderful!” and asking bandleader Paul Schaffer, “What do you think, Paul?”
“I love this band,” Schaffer said.
Here’s a video of the performance. If you want to see it in higher quality, you can cue up the end of this video of the entire episode.
