It’s the 2nd November which means - like it or not - Christmas is around the corner, and getting us into the festive spirit already, Future Islands have offered their take on the 1984 Wham! classic ‘Last Christmas’.
Future Islands released their latest album ‘As Long As You Are’ in 2020. In our review of the album, we said, “‘As Long As You Are’ is a steady-as-she-goes sort of affair - a solid effort from the four-piece that would fare better with a little more exploration.”
Revisit the full review here, and check out their cover of ‘Last Christmas’ below.
