Published Aug 05, 2013On September 17, Nick Thorburn's indie-pop project Islands will follow up A Sleep & A Forgetting with a new record called Ski Mask. Now, we get another taste of the record with new single "Becoming the Gunship."
The song opens with palm-muted guitars, snare rolls and gentle singing, suggesting it'll be a fairly quiet track. Then, once the chorus hits, it's all wide-open, expansive and triumphant. In other words, this is another pop gem from Thorburn.
Check out "Becoming the Gunship" below.
