Islands

After the breakup of experimental lo-fi indie rock band the Unicorns, members Nicholas Thorburn (aka Nick Diamonds; vocals, guitar, keyboard) and Jamie Thompson (aka J'aime Tambeur; drums) formed Islands, which found the two more focused on brighter production and neo-psychedelic indie pop. Since forming in early 2005, the Canadian band has also featured a fluctuating lineup of contributors on a wide variety of instruments, both in concert and on record. That list includes Alex and Sebastian Chow (the 1993 and 1994 World Super NES Fest champions), Jim Guthrie (grandson of Woody and nephew of Arlo), and rappers Subtitle and Busdriver.

Islands released the debut album Return to the Sea in April 2006, supporting its international release with a tour alongside Metric. That May, however, founding member Tambeur announced his departure from the band, a move that required the group to quickly revise its lineup in time for a European tour. Two years later, Islands inked a new contract with ANTI- Records and issued a second album, Arm's Way, which differentiated itself from the previous record by eschewing all guest appearances. The band did end up opening its doors to one particular guest, however, as Tambeur rejoined Islands just in time to appear on their third release, Vapours. His return would be short-lived, however, as the group would announce Tambeur's departure again in 2010, with drummer Aaron Harris, a bandmember between 2006 and 2009, arriving back in the lineup to take his place. In a seemingly endless game of revolving drummers, he was soon replaced by Luc Laurent of the band Pepper Rabbit. The band's next album, A Sleep & a Forgetting, appeared early in 2012. The record was inspired by the dissolution of Thorburn's marriage and featured the most sincere and direct music of the band's career to date. The group's next album, 2013's Ski Mask, featured the core line-up of Thorburn and Laurent, who were joined by brothers Evan and Geordie Gordon of the Guelph, Ontario band the Magic. ~ Kenyon Hopkin, Rovi

Islands are an amazing and ambitious band.

Just like many other bands, Pandora only scratches the surface with songs representing the artist but Islands is my default station indefinitely . islandsarefo r e v e r

Goddamit I am getting sick of 'Creeper'. Do they have any other songs? Do I have to thumbs down this song? I swear I will! Do you think I won't? Well I did. Suckit Pandora!
Sincerely, W. Wilson
ps, "The View" by Modest Mouse and "Daft Punk is Playing at my house" by LCD Soundsystem are next if you don't give me some variety!

I loved The Unicorns, they had passion, energy, and motivation in their sound. Islands carries on all of these elements in a different attitude, in some ways more refined and in some even more disjoined and personal.

These guys are amazing. Unicorns before and islands after. Both genius. Though the islands are much more concise with their sound. I wish bands never broke up...islands forevah?

Yeah, well, F**kin A, you've never seen me put them down. I had Buddha take me by the earlobe and tow me around the Universe one night. I wasn't sure I was coming back from that one.

I am giving these guys carte blanche. Do whatever you want to, Islands, because you deserve it.

Awesome band, I prefer their second album over their first but most critics will tell you differently.
