Norwich based quartet The Islas‘s latest single ‘Last Time Forever‘ is indie rock paradise. Written during the middle of lockdown, songwriters Nathan and Ross spent their time writing and sending music files to each other for weeks and created ‘Last Time Forever’. A follow up to their single ‘Close’, which gained huge support from BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio, ‘Last Time Forever’ is already paving its way through the limelight.
On the release, Nathan mentioned, “I was in a pretty dark place I won’t lie. I was struggling a lot with the lockdown at first, I packed away my games consoles, wouldn’t touch my books or my Mac. I spent some of my time going to the Norfolk coast and just sitting in my car or walking along the beaches. It was in these moments that I carved out the lyrics. It’s a really emotional song, and in a way a love-sick song but it’s like I’m talking to myself really. ‘Lost my hopeful thoughts somewhere in between, deep sleep and a funny dream’ came from the fact that I thought I just woke up and everything changed one day. I’d lost all my positivity, and I am definitely a positive person! Ross had this excellent riff which I started sining along to and as soon as I sent over a draft to him, we both really loved what we’d created”.
“Last Time Forever” steals your attention and leaves you wanting more. Stick the track on loop and support Norwich’s finest new band.
