London indie rockers Island, return with brand new single ‘Octopus’.
Following on from their 2019 EP “When We’re Still”, Island’s love of crystal clear, clinking guitars and math-rock vibes continue with the multifaceted story of ‘Octopus’. Speaking about the track, Island says: “‘Octopus’ describes the feeling of looking back on rebellious teenage years from a time where an impulse to cause trouble has been replaced with new sentiments. It’s about the conflict felt as a musician between wanting to grow older and wiser and wanting to stay young, and it asks if we as a world are only interested in stories and whether normality is something to be desired”.
‘Octopus’ retains their signature clean indie-rock sound; amplified by producer Mikko Gordon (Radiohead/ Arcade Fire), adding the depth that will allow Island to move forward while retaining their earlier charm.
