Islands “The End”

Los Angeles-based Islands are preparing to release their new LP, What Occurs on June 21st. The second single from the album is “The End.” The song is being billed as the last song on Islands last album ever. Nick Thorburn said “We’ve reached the last stop on the station, and it’s time to disembark into the void. With this song, I wanted to look back on the hinge point in our lives when we begin to realize that our existence will not be forever. And when we reach the end, how will we reflect on the life we led? Are we satisfied with the choices we made?”

Despite the weightiness of those questions, they are still delivered in Thorburn’s traditionally quirky style. Lush vocal harmonies, strummed acoustic guitar, and a four-on-the-floor drum beat make the song a catchy way to go out.
