With their upcoming EP being released on July 13th through LAB Records (Martin Luke Brown, KYKO, Marsicans), Brighton based five piece Island Club have swiftly established themselves as certifiable ones to watch with their first release of 2018 ‘Submarine’.
Amassing nearly 3 million streams on Spotify with upbeat synth-pop bangers ‘Let Go’, ’Paper Kiss’ and ‘Irresistible’, the boys drop their latest single ‘Talk It Out’ – another undeniable indie heater, drenched with a faultless gloss that has already led to comparisons to Fickle Friends, Sundara Karma and LANY. ‘Talk It Out’ shows off Island Club’s natural aptitude for writing the kind of lustrous melodies and infectious hooks.

Gold Key kickstart a new chapter today, unveiling new single Mechanical World following its premiere on BBC Radio 1 Rock Show. The track showcases a new dimension to the Watford quartet’s kaleidoscopic sound, with abrasive and fuzzy riffs, hammering, stadium-worthy drums and Steve Sears ability to effortlessly switch from an emotive and haunting vocal, to a gritty and explosive chorus.

Farnham pop punks HOMEBOUND
release a new video for latest single COMING CLEAN
“Coming Clean relates to the anxiety felt when closing in on an inevitable confrontation. The over-thinking and played out scenarios we mull over and over in our heads until we realise there’s nothing left to do but say what needs to be said. We wanted a video that mirrored the energy and aggression of the song, and much like the whole record, we wanted something that best represented the band that we are. ” – Charlie Boughton, vocals
