LISTEN: Low Island - 'In Person'

Very excited about this one! For me, Low Island are one of the most exciting bands on the scene - as well as being some of the nicest guys I've had the pleasure of meeting. They've been figuring out their sound as a band over the past couple of years, releasing singles, EPs and most recently Low Island & Friends 17-18, a collection of their tracks from the past couple of years showcasing just how much brilliant music they've been putting out. I'm constantly eagerly anticipating what they're about to do next and love this new track!

With a run of shows coming up in March, the band just shared their first new music of the year in the shape of single In Person. Instant tune. The track was recorded back in October with Miles James, when the band headed to Echozoostudios in Eastbourne for a couple of days "recording stuff onto tape, using a load of 70s analogue gear, synths, sequencers and generally messing around and having fun."

As a recent (ish) graduate, I find myself losing touch with both secondary school and university friends as life seems to get in the way, and the track is therefore pretty relatable with lyrics like "recently we just love to cancel, put it off and watch seasons change" and the refrain "I want to see you, see you in person." In the band's own words, "it's a tune about losing touch with people as you get older, even though it's so easy not to nowadays."
