Bands to keep a watch out for in the future: #2: Islands Lost At Sea

By on Friday, 13th April 2007 at 5:24 pm

Islands Lost at SeaThis year’s Road To V competition has been lining up pretty well, with some fab entrants that hopefully should make the shortlist and onto the TV.

Following on from yesterdays post about Bikini Black Special, today’s turn is for Bolton trio Islands Lost At Sea, who are like nothing else around at the moment. As they say themselves: “Islands Lost at Sea currently make the worst music of a genre that isn’t due to be fashionable for another six years” – its like Tom Waits playing Lemon Jelly, and boy is it good. Chilled out, jazzy and unique all at the same time – its like a radio 1 DJ’s wet dream to find something this unique and different.

Islands Lost at Sea claim that “Their method is to use an entirely unnecessary amount of instruments to make music that none of them like and that sound like nothing else” – yet whilst they may not like it, its stuff that can be equally loved in the clubs and on the festival stages… a British LCD soundsystem, with the indie appeal of a guitar band and the dancey appeal of an electro duo.

Whilst they’re decidely modest: they claim that “In music you can either make your name by being the first or being the best. Fifty years of musical miscarriages have proved that there is little point in the Islands pursuing the latter option”.

Why not check this band out whilst they’re still a quiet underground band?
