Island have announced the release of their debut album Feels Like Air on April 6 next year ahead of their UK tour which starts next week. The album is introduced by their new single Try.
The London-based four-piece are Rollo Doherty, Jack Raeder, James Wolfe and Toby Richards. They've released a number of singles and EPs over the past couple of years - 2015's Girl EP being followed by singles Come With Me and Spotless Mind last year before releasing the A Place Like You EP earlier this year.
Try is a gloriously upbeat shimmering electronic track that showcases the band perfectly. It's also accompanied by a video set at a swimming pool with a number of characters diving off a high board, inspired by the film Ten Meter Tower directed by Axel Danielson and Maximilien Van Aertryck.
The band are out on a tour starting at Manchester Deaf Institute on November 2, before moving on to Newcastle Think Tank (3), Edinburgh La Belle Angele (4), Leeds Brudenell Social (6), Nottingham Bodega (7), Birmingham Sunflower Lounge (8), Leicester Cookie (9), Bristol Louisiana (10) and Brighton Hope And Ruin (11) before heading to the continent and Amsterdam Sugar Factory (15), Cologne Blue Shell (16), Hamburg Hakken (17), Berlin Kantine Am Berghain (18), Prague Cross Club (20), Vienna Chelsea (21), Munich Unter Deck (22), Baden Werk (23), Nyon La Parenthese (24) and Paris Le Pop-Up Du Label (25).
