Islands Detail First LP In Five Years 'Islomania', Share (We Like To) Do It With The Lights On

Friday, 05 March 2021 Written by Jon Stickler

Islands are back with details of their first album in five years.

'Islomania', their eighth studio full-length, will arrive via the Canadian indie band's new label home at Toronto's Royal Mountain Records on June 11.

Head below to check out the record's tracklist, artwork and lead single (We Like To) Do It With The Lights On, a dancey, indie-pop earworm that comes paired with a video directed by Tim Nackashi.

Returning from a short spell as a solo songwriter, after quietly retiring the band in 2016, frontman Nick Thorburn said of the track's inspiration:

"I came up with the song title as a tossed-off joke. It seemed fitting with the kind of playful innuendo that seems to do well in the pop sphere. Once I started to flesh it out after booting up the band again, I realized it was mine, and for Islands only. I started it with the groove first, and built the melody off the top. This is like most of the songs on this record, which is new for me."

'Islomania' tracklist: 

1. Islomania
2. (We Like To) Do It With The Lights On
3. Carpenter
4. Closed Captioning
5. Set The Fairlight
6. A Passionate Age
7. Natural Law Party
8. Never Let You Down
9. Marble
10. Gore
