Islands - "Wave Forms"

New Musicalex nicollComment

Nick Thorburn, the man behind Islands (and The Unicorns, RIP now who will cut our hair?) releases this new cut off of upcoming LP Ski Mask. The song, a slightly funky piano-pop song with existential lyrics, follows the path of much of Islands' older work. Any worries about too much sameness are erased when the chorus hits with rolling marimbas and descending synth lines. Nick sings about "moving on" but really, we'd prefer it if you didn't dude.
