Islands - "Wave Forms"

Islands, the project led by former Unicorn Nick Thorburn, stays forever busy. Their last album, A Sleep & A Forgetting, is only a year old, but they’ve already announced plans for the follow-up. Ski Mask, the new one, is set to arrive this fall, and in a press release, Thorburn says that it’s “like a summation of Islands, everything we’ve ever done distilled into one record.” He also writes that the album is “really about being angry.” “Wave Forms,” the album’s first single, is a florid and idiosyncratic pop song, one built from pianos and keyboards and lush studio orchestrations. Stream it below.

Ski Mask is out in September on Thorburn’s own Manqué label.

  1. I haven’t listened to these guys since Arm’s Way, which I quite enjoyed even though I remember people shitting on it at the time. Should I dive back in?
