Wave Like HomeUpset The Rhythm
***Wave Like Home is a breathless testament to romance and grasping chances, forever enthralled to the optimism of trying again. It's a sincere and sometimes painfully honest record about chasing broken dreams and finding courage in a forsaken heart. An album infatuated with timescales like always and forever. From the broken elegy of woozy opener "Pangea" through the euphoric fun trips of "Old Friend" and the upbeat "Seize A Shark," the album never drifts far from reflection amongst it's highest highs. For every throbbing track recalling breakneck pursuits there's a soulful reminder of the quieter side of a melodramatic heart. Wave Like Home is a worthy debut album for FUTURE ISLANDS—perfectly capturing their bittersweet nature.
