Published Jan 17, 2012Our first taste of Islands' piano-driven new album, A Sleep & A Forgetting, was the sombre breakup ballad "This Is Not a Song". For the latest preview track, the Nick Diamonds-fronted project have shared the much more upbeat "Hallways."
The song is anchored by galloping, country-esque drums, which are fleshed out with saloon-style piano tinkles and warm vocal harmonies. By the sound of things, A Sleep & A Forgetting might not be a total sad sack album after all.
The album is out on February 14 via Anti-.
Be sure to catch Islands on tour in the coming months.
