London band ISLAND return with a new single “Everyone’s The Same,” a laidback slacker rock anthem with a grunge oomph where they muse on the impact that we can have as individuals. It’s a bit more slow-burning than their typical sound, but still delivers the dense riffs and intensity that leaves you with goosebumps. Check it out:

“’Everyone’s The Same’ is a song for anyone who’s angry at being told they can’t make any sort of difference or can’t be a positive force for change,” said ISLAND’s singer Rollo Doherty of the track. “I’d been getting really frustrated with this idea that as individuals our actions aren’t able to make a difference on the collective impact we’re having on the world, the idea that we’re all destined to have a negative influence on the environment just by existing, and that everyone is equally guilty. But the song is intended to be broader than that, and to capture that feeling of frustration at being told what you’re worth.”

The track was recorded in London last summer with Mikko Gordon (Thom Yorke) and is out now via Frenchkiss Records.
