During the crowdfunding of HoS latest album 'Noir', backers could request any track their heart's desire, in exchange for a contribution. 'Light House' is taken from Future Islands' 2014 album 'Singles', their first on the iconic label, 4AD. I would like to thank Josh Brandt for giving me the opportunity to cover a track from Sam Herring and company, a band that deserve a lot more attention. If for most patience is a virtue, for Josh, patience is his a superpower! Thanks a million for the challenge and letting me sharing it with the world Mr. Brandt! I hope I haven't let you down!

Originally composed by Future Islands
Lyrics by Samuel T. Herring
This cover was arranged, played, recorded and produced by Handful of Snowdrops, between December 2018 and January 2019.
