Published Aug 28, 2013Islands, the Los-Angeles-via-Montreal band fronted by Nick Thorburn, has been through several lineup changes since their 2006 debut, Return to the Sea, but that hasn't stopped Thorburn. The current incarnation of the indie-pop outfit is set to release a new full-length record, Ski Mask, next month.
Thorburn dropped by with band members Evan and Gordie Gordon to perform a cover of the Jonathan Richman song "That Summer Feeling." The cover, played with two guitars and bass, stays true to the original's laid-back vibe with the added benefit of the Gordon brothers' background vocals.
Watch the performance below. Islands will be appearing at the Media Club in Vancouver on September 21 and at the Garrison in Toronto on October 10. Tour dates can be seen here.
