Future Islands: Midnight Chats – Episode 133

Up the Toffees, with Samuel T Herring

Sam T. Herring’s distinctive growl and spectacular dance moves may still be one of the best known things about Future Islands, but away from the chest-thumping on stage he’s a charismatic, thoughtful and humble guy.

I spoke with him to talk about his recent move into acting (he starred in TV series The Changling last year), the heartbreak channeled in Future Islands’ most recent album People Who Aren’t There Anymore and why he’s a diehard follower of an average British football team (sorry, Everton fans).
