Islands everywhere!

I was very excited to see today that Islands have released another song off of their upcoming album, Arm's Way. The new song, Creeper, is the third track the group has leaked this year; The Arm popped up on the interweb around the end of January, and Arm's Way was released about two weeks ago. Trying to piece this album together, I feel like I'm collecting buttons . "Look ma! I found track three!"

Anyways, this album promises to be a good one. Creeper has an awesome, top-of-the-world beat to it and it's the kind of song you would listen to while strutting down the street on a bright sunny day. It does, however, have hints of a darker tone (which makes you question the innocence of those Islands kids). The Arm is more reminiscent of Islands' work from their debut album. If you listen closely enough, you can hear a few unicorns in the distance. See what I just did there?

Islands will be touring this month in the U.S. No word yet on Canadian shows.

In the meantime, here are a few treats:
Islands- Creeper
