“This Is Not A Song”

    We have been waiting patiently to hear new music from Islands since frontman Nick Thorburn revealed the band has a new album, A Sleep & A Forgetting, dropping Feb. 14, 2012. While we’re still more than two months away from listening to the entire release, the first leak from the record has finally hit the web. It’s “This is Not a Song,” a rather misleading title for a track that’s just as arresting as it is vocally engaging. Just don’t expect any huge soaring pop moments from Thorburn and company on “This is Not a Song,” as they have kept it lounge-ready with some rich pianos, organs, and guitars. You can stream the track below. [130 BPM]
