“Islands” by Zola Blood

London four-piece Zola Blood have released another song off their upcoming debut entitled ‘Islands’.

‘Islands’ is lifted from the bands upcoming album “Infinite Games”.

Islands continues the band’s brand of brooding electronic pop, propelled by a repetitive arpeggio and staccato hand claps, before dropping to a huge synth line and soaring crescendo. Duncan Toothill (George FitzGerald / Little Cub) provides some extra synth work and Boxed In’s Oli Bayston is on mixing duties.

Explaining the idea behind the lyrics, singer Matt said, “A friend of mine was telling me about an evening she spent with her boyfriend of the time, getting rained on all night in a tent and said in passing that they felt like an island. That imagery just stuck in my head. The track is about drifting off with someone, forgetting who you are or where you’re supposed to be.”

Zola Blood are Matt, Ed, Sam & Paul. Based in Hackney Wick, the band have been putting out their music on Pond Life Records (home of Talk Talk) since 2014.

Infinite Games will be released early 2017.
