Islands Reveal Vapours Tracklist

Amrit Singh | July 30, 2009 - 4:51 pm

In addition to giving us a listen of lead MP3 “No You Don’t” and revealing that steamy album art, today Nick Diamonds’ reconfigured Islands offer a glance at the song titles that will constitute their forthcoming Vapours LP. The followup to last year’s Arm’s Way is out in September and sees the outfit welcome back original member Jamie Thompson on drum machines and sequencers on a twelve-song, 42 minute set. Try and pick Nick’s lyrical mindset as your pore over the track names:

01 “Switched On” (3:31)
02 “No You Don’t” (3:44)
03 “Vapours” (2:41)
04 “Devout” (2:30)
05 “Disarming The Car Bomb” (4:15)
06 “Tender Torture” (3:33)
07 “Shining” (4:00)
08 “On Foreigner” (4:49)
09 “Heartbeat” (3:09)
10 “The Drums” (2:47)
11 “EOL” (3:22)
12 “Everything Is Under Control” (4:07)
