The Isles – Summer Loans
It’s been a good summer for the New York foursome, with their album Perfumed Lands (‘A slow burn album for all seasons. 8/10’ – NME) prompting positive reviews and so it’s no surprise they want to extend it for as long as possible. New single Summer Loans has an unmistakably East Coast groove but such an intrinsically familiar tapestry of woven guitar parts and vocal melody you’ll swear you’ve been getting up to dance to it for the last ten years. Lovingly put together in their self-made studio, Summer Loans manages to capture the echo of the great New York outdoors as well as the claustrophobia of the great New York sprawl. They’re a curious distillation of Britpop and East Coast punk and now honourary Mancunians in spirit and sound. We hope you’ll make them feel welcome. “I’m very sensitive to heat. It renders me useless”.- Ben The Isles have sat out the scorching July and August in the city and are longing for their natural habitat of cooler climbs, so it’s just as well that Summer Loans heralds the band’s first invasion of these isles.
