ISLAND has been a favorite indie rock band since the four piece made their debut with Stargazer. We jumped on the opportunity to pre-order their debut album Feels Like Air the moment we could, which was months ago. And now every so often we receive an email from the company we purchased the record from saying the album isn’t available yet. We really appreciate the good customer service, but we agree with their sentiment regarding being incredibly impatient for its arrival! Feels Like Air will be out on April 6th, and ISLAND recently revealed a new gem off the release named Ride. The band says the song embodies the whole theme of their debut album, “the idea of movement and journey was the cornerstone that brought the record together”. Ride really does move, a dreamy gliding, dusty rolling indie rock anthem that celebrates “freedom, adventure, and the power that comes with being young.” Though it’s pensive and melancholic, ragged and visceral, Ride is a dynamic and adroit beaut that courses with lifelike vivacity, driven by its 80s-influenced glistening riffs and its impassioned vocals. It takes us on a “ride” of a lifetime that feels familiar to the heart. ISLAND will be touring the UK and Europe after the release of their debut album. Hopefully, they’ll make plans to visit us across the pond once those dates are over, too. Stream Ride via alternate platforms, here.
