Het Londense quartet Island brak door bij debuut EP 'Girl', in de winter van 2015. De grootste hit 'Stargazer' kwam op nummer 7 in de Spotify viral charts, met 2 miljoen downloads. Na een aantal festivals en radio uitzendingen te hebben gedaan, laat de band zien dat je live niet om ze heen kunt.

ISLAND is misschien de enige Britse indie act in de afgelopen tijd, die weer aan het vraagniveau van de hoofdstad kunnen geraken, en dat wellicht al door de aandacht voor hun debuut LP, waarover ze zeer verheugd zijn. De LP zal worden released via Frenchkiss (Diet Cig, Drowners, De Hold Steady).

En nu komen ze naar Amsterdam, om daar de boel omver te blazen tijdens hun show. Hebben wij even geluk dat ze dat komen doen in Sugarfactory, op woensdag 15 november.

ISLAND (UK)
Location: Sugarfactory (small hall)
Date: Wednesday, November 15
Times: 20:00u till 22:30u

It's been a lively ride for London 4 piece ISLAND who announced themselves with debut EP ‘Girl’ at the back end of 2015 which saw debut single ‘Stargazer’ hit no. 7 of the UK Spotify viral chart. After just a handful of shows, the band headlined 800 capacity Scala last November and more recently took the step up to Heaven, the target venue for the top crop of major label guitar acts launching their debut albums.

ISLAND quite possibly might be the only indie UK act in recent times to hit this level of demand in the capital, and all before their attentions turned towards their debut LP which they are delighted to announce will be released through Frenchkiss (Diet Cig, Drowners, The Hold Steady).

Don't be fooled however. If headlining Heaven was a right of passage the band have certainly put in the required groundwork to hit their stride. After extensive tours with Amber Run and Palace, the latter of which took them to Europe, ISLAND are as assured being the stars as they are reaching for them. Their cerebral take on pop readies them to take the baton from groups like Foals and Bombay Bicycle Club well evidenced in their Heaven crowd who weren't shy belting their hook-laden choruses back at them.
