Starting in their hometown of Oxford, Low Island are heading back out on the road in support of their debut LP “If You Could Have It All Again” (out April 16th) this September across the UK. Their new single ‘Who’s Having The Greatest Time?’ is a pulsating call to the likes of LCD Soundsystem or previous collaborator TEED, with a steady flow of rapid-fire synths melding together with jubilant indie-pop rhythms. Accompanied by a live video from The Stone Room, it’s a healthy reminder of the invigorating energy that the four-piece bring to their live shows. 

Multi-instrumentalist and songwriter in this instance Jamie Jay, explains the lyrical meaning behind the track: “’Who’s Having The Greatest Time?’ is about the negative performative nature of Instagram, an environment which is constantly telling you that everyone only wants to see strength and victories, but seeing either of these makes us consistently depressed and insecure. The song is from the point of view of someone challenging a friend about how they both have come to use the platform. They then toy with the tempting and liberating idea of leaving the whole thing behind for good.”

Low Island’s tour begins with a hometown date of Oxford’s Jericho Tavern, with tickets available here.
