Future Islands made their network television debut on March 3, 2014, when they performed this song
on The Late Show with David Letterman
. Letterman shouted "I'll take all of that you got!" following the band's passionate performance, creating a meme along the way.
"I remember before the show, looking at some of the previous Letterman performances online and how many views they got, and I was like, 'Oh that's cool, 5,000 views or so!'" Herring recalled to Billboard
magazine. "None of us own TVs, and it's been forever since we watched a late show. We didn't really expect that it would become something, because nobody thought that performance would get that reaction."
