UK quartet ISLAND has been engraving their own mark in the dream pop realm with their knack for burning the boundaries of reality and imagination with their smoky celestial sound. Their latest music video “Horizon,” directed by Claes Nordwall, is a journey into the Swedish countryside, but also into someone else’s dreams that seems deceivingly possible yet undeniably suspicious. That’s what dreams are all about:

ISLAND explained that the song “captures a key theme of the album as a whole – the idea of a passenger drifting through different dreams on a journey. We wanted the video to reflect the open soundscape we feel the song creates, so we jumped at the chance to shoot in the vast Swedish countryside. Claes took us back to his snowy hometown for the video, which had an amazing dreamlike feel that really suited the ideas we wanted to convey.”

“Horizon” is from ISLAND’s upcoming record Feels Like Air, which will be out on April 6th via Frenchkiss Records. They have tour dates coming up:
