Second that motion.  Every time it comes on I look up to see if it is something new from the x-bauhausien.

It seems record companies sign up groups/ singers that are "off from the norm", but they wear a bit thin quite quickly. If you see this guy performing that point may arrive even earlier.

Yes, the same (3-chord) chord progression (different key) in the verses, different progression in the chorus.  When it comes to tempo, just about every Future Islands song has this tempo, and this one's tempo is faster than that of U2's song.

My observation also. Of course, my perception is based on hearing this band on RP. They have a distinctive enough sound, but if each piece hews to the same framework, this will wear out. Maybe this beat is necessary to unleash the singers' gyrations.

Good call Proclivities.  I think of this as 'synth-pop'.  More traditional (irony intended) so-called progressive rock seeks to switch up the tempo, adopt unusual time signatures and use the bass on occasion to drive the melody.

I quite enjoyed the last Future Islands CD so I will listen attentively to this and other songs off The Far Field CD.
