UK quartet ISLAND has finally dropped their debut album Feels Like Air today and like its title, it’s a gorgeous flight to the human condition where the four finds a way to soothe us – even in the most depressive waters (like aging, mortality, etc.). Toying with airy strings and breezy synths, ISLAND casts a pulsing and ethereal sound that funnels us through existential lens. It’s a sweet melancholic journey where the dreamy melodic density often makes you feel desolated with your own inner thoughts:

ISLAND will start touring Europe this month and will hit North American this fall:
