ISLAND was a name totally unknown to me until about 20 minutes ago when I bumped into their newly released “I’ve Been Searching”, and I’m typing this in the middle of one of my classes just to make sure you get the news. The London group, made up of Rollo Doherty, Jack Raeder, James Wolfe, and Toby Richards, released “I’ve Been Searching” as the third single from their upcoming EP, “Girl”, due out soon.
“I’ve Been Searching” blends a simple alt-rock instrumental with somber, haunting vocals for a perfectly sad soundtrack to the montage of a movie where the main character starts packing up their stuff to leave. Smooth guitar work dominates the well-crafted soundscape and the drum work is top-quality.
