Often times we may find ourselves with an addiction to a wrong kind of love – one that does more harm than anything else. Oxford quartet Low Island tap into that state with their latest single “Feel Young Again,” an art pop piece with the sensibilities of dreamy ambience that takes you into the reflective and often painful process of letting go. As Low Island point out, “Feel Young Again” does not only capture the emotional weight of it, but also the mental strength that is required to disabuse yourself from thinking that you need to cling onto it for the sake of familiarity. Along with the video the band has shared a live video from the Stone Room, which you can check it out below:

On the song’s theme, vocalist Carlos Posada elaborated:

“‘Feel Young Again’ is about a toxic relationship; not with a person, but with a part of yourself that you need to let go of. A part of yourself that is doing you harm but because of familiarity and a fear of change, you can’t give it up. It’s about taking that thing, feeling or frame of mind for one last dance before finally letting it go.”

The track is from the band’s upcoming debut album If You Could Have It All Again, which will be out on April 16th.
