The Canadian indie rock band Islands have announced new album titled Islomania after five years of break. It will be released on June 11 via their new label home Royal Mountain Records. Also, the band released lead single called (We Like To) Do It With the Lights On. The new single came with music video directed by Tim Nackashi.
Islands’ Nick Thorburn commented about the new album;
This seemed like a perfect time to put a cap on things and close out the circle. But after the decision was made, he began writing songs with the idea that he was writing for other musicians. It ultimately resulted in a new Islands album.
Thorbun added about lead single;
I came up with the song title as a tossed-off joke, It seemed fitting with the kind of playful innuendo that seems to do well in the pop sphere. Once I started to flesh it out after booting up the band again, I realized it was mine, and for Islands only. I started it with the groove first, and built the melody off the top. This is like most of the songs on this record, which is new for me.
