Things We Love This Week: Island, Superorganism, Mount Eerie

Photo: Melanie Tjoeng

There’s chaos in the air. KFC ran out of chicken and Fergie took an “artistic risk” with her rendition of the US anthem. Calm down by having a listen to these nice things.

Island – Ride

On Tuesday, this London four-piece shared a video for their latest single, Ride. In it, we watch the band messing around and playing shows in between travelling through serene snowscapes and mountain ranges. The almost pizzicato guitar riff, heavy on both reverb and delay, gives it a simultaneously energetic and chilled out feel, really igniting that desperation to go on a road trip somewhere snowy right away. Ride is taken from new full-length ‘Feels Like Air’, which is due for release on April 6 via FrenchKiss Records. They’re also off on tour in May.

Superorganism – Reflections On A Screen

The latest offering from this hyper-modern pop group, Reflections on a Screen, deals with that whole rigmarole of modern day technology addiction, in a manner far more introspective and far less perky than their previous singles Something For Your M.I.N.D and Everybody Wants to Be Famous. The video captures exactly that feeling of spending too much time staring at a screen, zoning in and out of concentration. Their self titled debut is due on March 2 through Domino.

Mount Eerie – Tintin in Tibet

Last month, Mount Eerie announced ‘Now Only’, his follow-up to 2017’s ‘A Crow Looked At Me’, a heart-wrenching record inspired by the passing of songwriter Phil Elverum’s wife, Geneviève Castrée. His new track, Tintin in Tibet, is the new record’s opener, and is equally as gentle and crestfallen as its perfect predecessor. ‘Now Only’, will arrive on March 16 through his own label, P.W. Elverum & Sun. 

Over and out.
