Islands Are Just Gonna Have To Explain This Album Art To Us One Day

Because as album art goes this is pretty out there, team. We’re talking about Islands’ forthcoming Arm’s Way, which has inspired a few gushes here and there. And by the LP’s newly revealed artistic rendering, the way of the arm is a trippy and quasi-Biblical one. There are arms, at least. It’s best expressed pithily, so the one word review: Whoa.


While you chew on that cherubic goodness, we’ll load you up on the pertinent info: Arm’s Way is out 5/20 on Anti-, and there are a few MP3s and tour dates this way.

If you’re ready to start scrolling again, we decided to end here with a trio of tunes from Islands’ much loved SXSW set at the Cedar St. Courtyard last month, including a couple of newbies and a “Whalebone” with Subtitle getting strangled by a mallet.

“VERTIGO (IF IT’S A CRIME)”

“THE ARM”

“WHERE THERE’S A WILL THERE’S A WHALEBONE”
