Published Apr 01, 2014While Canadian music fans are left waiting patiently for the previously hinted at reunion from twee pop aficionados the Unicorns, co-founding frontman Nick Thorburn's beloved pop rock project Islands is still going strong. While on break from their most recent North American tour on behalf of their 2013 LP Ski Mask, the band met up with Exclaim! TV to perform an exclusive live rendition of their unreleased track "Snowflake."
Recorded live at the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto, watch as Thorburn and co. strut their way through the tropically-tinged, angular indie pop number, which is made all the more special by keyboardist Evan Gordon's sea-worthy wardrobe and Thorburn's perfectly positioned scarf.
While there's still no word when the track will see it's official release, rest easily knowing you can watch the band's sun-soaked live rendition over and over again in the player below.
