Bono gives Future Islands some love in Rolling Stone

Future Islands!

Future Islands!

2014 just keeps getting better for Baltimore’s Future Islands. They were a huge hit on Letterman. Win Butler, the lead singer of Arcade Fire, joined them on stage to play their single “Seasons (Waiting On You).” And thousands came out to see them play for free at Hampdenfest last month.

Now, they can add another celebrity to their rapidly growing fan base: Bono.

In a new Rolling Stone article, one of the “18 Things You Learn Hanging Out With U2″ is that “Bono loves the band Future Islands.”

“Have you seen them?” he asks. “That song, ‘Seasons?’ A miracle, that is.”

We can only agree.
