Whether it’s a debut single, EP or album your first impressions are crucial to any artists success. Brighton five-piece Island Club have come forward to cement their position as certifiable ones to watch.

With the release of their self-titled EP on Friday (July 13), Island Club have produced four beautiful, energetic and infectious indie-pop songs that are to die for.

Released on LAB Records, the EP kicks off with the fun and funky ‘Talk It Out’ which is an undeniable indie heater. Drenched with a faultless gloss that has already led to comparisons to Fickle Friends, Sundara Karma and LANY.

Other released singles ‘Sober’ and ‘Submarine’ are confident, powerful indie anthems, fusing lavish synths with those anthemic guitars to produce something quite powerful indeed.

The beautifully melodic ‘In My Head’ is the final piece of the puzzle. The band’s debut body of work features the kind of glossy indie tunes that Island Club are fast becoming known for, truly underlining the sheer potential that the guys posses.

The band comprises of Michael Askew (vocals), Julien Forsythe-Lewis (guitar, keys), Sam Cantlon (drums), David Blowers (bass), and Barney Cox (keys).

A seven-date UK headline tour through September and October has been announced. Tickets for the upcoming tour and full details can be found below.
