The last time Future Islands performed on late night television, frontman Samuel T. Herring spawned a meme with his uninhibited dance moves. The band's follow-up went down last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where Future Islands performed the tracks "Doves" and "Spirit" from their recent album Singles. Watch videos of both performances below.

Though it's unlikely that Future Islands will go viral again with this performance, their newfound fame manifested itself in the studio audience's enthusiasm. Future Islands have built a fervent-but-small fanbase on their years of touring DIY venues, but now it's apparent that Herring and Co. can make even a network TV studio feel like an intimate setting, especially thanks to the frontman's interactions with fans in the first row. Future Islands have blown up without selling out, and are now one of the more unique-sounding bands you'll find gracing the sets of late night TV shows.
