ISLAND are an ambitious band. Once they’ve set their sights on a goal, they will charge full steam ahead to accomplish that, take the announcement of a headline show at London’s Scala as a sign for their impressive upward ascent of late. The foursome are decidedly beginning to steadily quicken pace, and new track ‘Come With Me’ offers more fuel to the why.
The single is one half of the upcoming AA release, which also stands with previously featured ‘Spotless Mind’ – a song about ‘what if’s’. Upon presenting their latest offering, the London group satisfy both a need for personal growth and musical fluidity, as their significant influences of blues and indie rock tussle hand in hand with poise and conviction.
Focus shifts in and out from the repeated refrain: “Come with me…”, leading swirling riffs and melody to form an ambient aura around the words. ISLAND are owning their style and by the workings of each new release, they are becoming more confident in their writing and are transforming into a formidable dynamic force.
‘Spotless Mind/Come With Me’ is available now, via Beatnik Creative. The band will play Scala on the 2nd November, tickets are on sale now.
