ISLAND: Share new single and music video: “Try”


London-four piece ISLAND return from a summer of writing and recording with new single “Try,” and in doing so are ready to claim the title of most exciting emerging young British indie band.

Having risen stealthily through the ranks over the last year, releasing music independently and selling out their now signature live shows, the culmination of a year’s work is now starting to pay serious dividends with “Try” – the band’s inaugural single on new label, Frenchkiss Records.

“Try” is a cinematic and empowering offering, showcasing the effortless way in which ISLAND mix dreamy vocals with an infectious sound and relatable lyrics, intertwined with rich textures and atmospheric guitars. To coincide with “Try,” ISLAND release their music video for the track. Inspired by the film Ten Meter Board the video was directed by Axel Danielson and Maximilien Van Aertryck and you can watch it here:

Speaking about the track, frontman Rollo Doherty says: “‘Try’ is a reminder of the fragility of love, and the effort it takes to hold together something that was once easy” The UK’s Wonderland call the track “stunning” and further declare it’s “an exciting glimpse into one of the most exciting bands at the moment, prepare to fall slightly in love with all of them after hearing this.”
Formed over a mutual love for each members’ appreciation of diverse musical genres, ISLAND, who just little over a year ago announced their debut EP – Girl, have bit-by-bit built a reputation as one of London’s most exciting bands. With over eight million Spotify streams, they have spent the last two years winning over fans on the road, adeptly backed by singles “Dreaming Of” and ” Stargazer.” The band have gone on to sell out four dates at renowned London venues, leading into a summer festival run that took in the likes of The Great Escape, Citadel, Secret Garden Party and a headline set on the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading and Leeds Festival.
Their genre-melding, guitar-inflected singles have quickly gained them fans, with spins from Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and 6Music, plus support from online tastemakers including i-DThe Line Of Best Fit and DIY. ISLAND’s stars continue to align – they now have everything in place to become one of the UK’s biggest breakthrough acts.
