Future Islands "Last Christmas" (Wham! cover)
Published Dec 24, 2015Not too long ago, Future Islands returned to their mollusk-minded Snails project for a revamped "Snails Christmas (I Want a New Shell)." Now, it's Christmas Eve, and Future Islands have offered up a new take on Wham!'s '80s-era yuletide jingle, "Last Christmas."
The band have offered up a traditional, synth-slathered interpretation of the cut, with Samuel T. Herring channelling George Michael's holiday pain via his own plaintive croon.
