Low Island - If You Could Have It All Again [Emotional Interference]

Coming in via mail recently is "If You Could Have It All Again" - the new, April 16th, 2k21 released ten track album by the buzzing four piece outfit known as Low Island. Put on the circuit via the Emotional Interference label the roughly 40 minutes spanning longplayer sees Low Island tackle a quite unique, somewhat ethereal and dreamy vision of Indie meets Pop attitude from the very first minute of the albums opener "Hey Man" onwards which seems to float eternally with only reaching a full on climax or point of relief a mere few seconds before the song ends despite featuring a plethora of complex drum solo eruptions along the way. This being said, the follow up "What Do You Stand For" provides a stark immediate contrast with its very British sound and electronic backing both causing havoc on IndieElectro, Electroclash and even BigBeat dancefloors whereas "In Your Arms" is as tender as a slightly blurred, misty DreamPop song might ever get with its slow drum pulse and ever rising synths which might be pointing towards success and continuous rotation on SlowHouse / Romantic House festival dancefloors as well even though these are not necessarily the bands main audience. "Who's Having The Greatest Time" dabbles with funky, slighty over the top 80s influences and the killer slow jam "I Do It For You" fills SynthPop-leaning late night dancefloors with ease whilst making itself at home in any music lovers brain for weeks on end before "What The Hell (Are You Gonna Do Now?)" waves goodbye in beautiful ballad'esque manner for a closing just to name a few.
