I guess it depends on what version of the Killers you are taking about. If it is When You Were Young/Mr. Brightside era the Killers then hell no. If it's Human/Shot at the Night era The Killers, I would still say no.
Future Islands doesn't have a guitarist and only recently added a drummer for live shows. I would say it is a hard to find a comp for a band with just a bass and synthesizer. Not too many lead singers are doing half crooning and half growling either. Also, the live shows are different animals compared to the album. When seen live the Killers and Future Islands have virtually nothing in common.
