Islands - Set the Fairlight

Taken from their forthcoming new album 'Islomania' which is set to be released on June 11th, 2021 via Royal Mountain Records, Canadian based outfit Islands have shared their latest single Set the Fairlight. "This was the last song made for the album, written and recorded during the pandemic," Thorburn explains. "I suppose it’s vaguely about the feeling of anxiety and fear brought on by COVID. There’s separation (by a cemetery wall - grim!), isolation and the desire to reach out and touch someone. None of these themes were calculated or laboured over, though. Like most of my songwriting, I kind of let the subconscious take the wheel. I find I get to more interesting places when I’m not trying to steer the metaphors." Take a listen to the catchy number for yourselves below.
