Another snowy day here in the east coast! I am driving my daughter’s Mini Cooper and I can’t say that it is the best vehicle for slippery, windy, hilly roads.

Snow is beautiful, but I am feeling like I need a little balance between winter and sunshine! I am looking forward to getting to spend some time in sunny, warm Arizona with my son later this week. He can get his fill of golf rounds and I can get my fill of sunshine, hiking, and time with old friends. Returning to places I have lived before is always a wonderful experience. I have so many good friends from my time in Arizona and I can hardly wait to get to spend some time with them. It may be hard to leave again.

The song of the day today is a very catchy tune and I love the sound that Future Islands creates. I think you will enjoy listening to this synthpop sound today – I know that I am enjoying listening to it. The video also seems to catch where I am today … they are seeking the beach and I am seeking the sunshine. 🙂

Future Islands is a synthpop group currently based out of Baltimore, Maryland. The band started in 2006 while they were attending East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. They have a very unique sound that makes for very easy listening. Future Islands have announced that they will be releasing a new album in March of this year, but this song is from their last album “On The Water,” which was released in late 2011.
