A new collaborative project / supergroup titled Islands, formed by the hottest shit bands in China, debuts this Saturday at Arkham
. Pet Conspiracy
, and Supermarket
have teamed up and rehashed the commonly used Islands name into what I can only imagine will be a synth-tastic good time. Besides indie bands Islands and Future Islands, about 20 artists have albums called Islands
, from King Crimson to Kajagogoo.
Semantics aside, this “new conceptual crossover journey with fantasy” sounds alright. Just in case it sucks eggs all three bands are playing short sets of original material. Win, win. Details
