Announced for next spring, ISLAND‘s debut album is one of the most awaited releases for 2018. The follow-up to the first single taken from it, ‘Try’, released a couple of weeks ago, here is ‘The Day I Die’, second number off ‘Feels Like Air’, due out through FrenchKiss Records.
Rollo Doherty’s vocals are at their finest, in a track that is both nervous and sweet, encompassing the elements of the four-piece’s signature sound. Rhythms in upbeat and infectious guitar riffs fill the space in a bluesy tune clearly expected to sound majestic live. The band stated, commenting the track: “It often seems in our increasingly digital world people have forgotten how to live. This song song is about finding the power to escape the mundane.”
Listen to ‘The Day I Die’ and ‘Try’, off ISLAND’s debut record. It’s going to be a long wait, but it’ll be worth it, believe me.
