New Music: Future Islands – “Cave”

In advance of their new album The Far Field, Future Islands have released a new lyric video for the album’s second single, “Cave.” The video features New York City mayor Bill De Blasio’s sign language interpreter Jonathan Lamberton, who signs along to the lyrics of the song against a black screen. Lamberton, who is deaf, first came into the public eye in 2015, after a clip of his signing along to a New York City storm announcement from De Blasio went viral–the interpreter’s non-traditional method of signing means working with a hearing partner to deliver a more nuanced, emphatic translation to those who can’t hear.

Future Islands released their single “Ran” earlier this month. The Far Field is due out April 7 on 4AD.
