Future Islands have always boasted an innate flair for the dramatic. In this softly-lit, Mike Anderson-directed clip for “Give Us The Wind,” a highlight from the Baltimore synth romantics’ fantastic new full-length, full-throated frontman Samuel T. Herring lends an otherwise macabre affair some real punch: a boatload of gesticulations and pained faces fit for The Globe.
