Perfect for your hopeless melancholia.

For all your mundane Monday morning blues, play Future Islands’ “Cave” where you can indulge in the hopelessness and emptiness of life in a soothingly, aerated soundscape. The noir (of course it’s noir) music video shows a Jesus-hair dude delivering the melancholic message in sign language. It’s time to crawl into the “Cave” of emptiness:

“I don’t believe anymore / I won’t give anymore / cus what was gold, is gone and cold” chants the vocalist Samuel Herring.

“Cave” is from their upcoming new record The Far Field, which will be out on April 7th. They have recently announced tour dates so go check them out:
