Hottest Artist In The World: ISLAND

Written by frtyfve Team

Our Hottest Artist In The World, ISLAND, prepare to release their debut album 'Feels Like Air'.

London-based four-piece ISLAND formed as teenagers when frontman Rollo Doherty’s acoustic bedroom project met the force of guitarist Jack Raeder, bassist James Wolfe and drummer Toby Richards.

Having honed their sound in dingy windowless practice rooms and more recently, on the domestic and international stage, ISLAND have become one of the UK’s most exciting upcoming alt-rock bands.

Their latest single, 'Horizon', is taken from their upcoming debut album, ‘Feels Like Air’. It is a slow-burning and atmospheric exploration of journeying through dreams. Despite its festival main stage ready hooks, the track illustrates the bands potential to craft mood and thought amongst their big hitting releases.

Their highly-anticipated debut album cradles their DIY approach to the creative process, with the whole album self-produced by the band. According to A&R platform, TalentAI, in the past seven days alone, the band have enjoyed 30,000 streams on their latest single and a 15% increase in their playlist following to over 6.7 million. With backing from Rock This and The Stress Buster, it is likely that ‘Feels Like Air’ is going to be a big hit.
