WATCH: Low Island - 'Just Another Dreamer'

What a week last week was for new releases... the return of Superorganism and The Black Keys, new Florence on repeat, new Cosmo Sheldrake and so much more that I can't get enough of.... there is however always space in my playlists (and my heart) for new Low Island! Following on from recent release Everything Before Us, they've released the track Just Another Dreamer and it is (unsurprisingly) brilliant. They never miss. A slower number to begin with, the layers build for a busier outro that I can only imagine being SO good live. My imagination there slightly helped along by another brilliant live performance music video... I must say that this series of videos is making me a little nostalgic for the 360 sessions by Post War Years around a decade ago. 

The track is taken from an EP of the same name, due April 8th via the band's own label Emotional Interference. That day too is shaping up to be quite the release day with new records from Wet Leg, Let's Eat Grandma, Kae Tempest, Dahlia Sleeps, Deanna Petcoff... aren't we lucky?!

Speaking about the track, Carlos shares that it is about "the promise of a future that may never come. The song is a reflection on one of my favourite Lennon quotations: 'Life's what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.'" 

If you like what you're hearing, you can pre-order the new EP via the band's Bandcamp here. It's a digital only release, and they're donating all the proceeds taken via Bandcamp to the Disasters Emergency Committee.
