Artist: Islands Track: "Creeper" Album: Arm's Way Listen
Islands, a very talented group from Quebec, adds a lot of pieces into this jigsaw creation: a killer lead guitar riff, a strong backbeat, breathy vocals, keys and strings. None of those parts, though, is pushed into the realm of the gimmick, leaving this a well orchestrated, catchy electro-pop track perfect for anyone sleepwalking into the office after enjoying a beautiful weekend with limited rain. (Take that, local meteorologists!)
Look for a full album review this week in the Coming Distractions video.
