“Islands” by Modernlove.

From Ireland comes the uber-talented indie pop-rock band Modernlove. with their latest sonic creation, say hello to “Islands”. With this exquisite blend of catchy melodies and honest and raw lyricism, they give life to a tale so human and so real. The track manages to instantly connect the dots and pull you in to be part of this story that’s coming alive from the moment you press play. There’s something quite special about this soundscape that understands how to caress your senses and make you feel invested in what’s going down in this reality.

Not only that, but visually the track enhances the musical side and brings all together in a mesmerizing fashion. So listen, see and fall prey to the unknown magic of this contemporary must-listen/must-see gem. Enjoy!

“Islands is a classic coming of age story. Trying to cope with the fallout of a family coming apart due to divorce and one’s own romantic relationship coming to an end at the same time. It tells the story of both, blurring them into one at times.

The song is about the distances between people in their relationships and how for some, it seems too impossible a task to even try to bridge those gaps. These people are made into “islands” by the oceans they must travel each day to meet and see each other eye to eye.

The song explores ways people try to deal with this struggle and this loneliness whether it be drink, drugs or sex but in the end it recognises that they are simply in a painful situation that they must accept and let happen as the song ends with the repeated words: “It’s coming apart and I can’t face it, I don’t wanna break down but I can’t take it”.
