London four-piece ISLAND are an alternative guitar band whose history is characterised by old friendships, close bonds, and an almost telepathic mutual understanding.
Forming as teenagers when frontman Rollo Doherty’s acoustic bedroom project was treated to the boisterous backing of guitarist Jack Raeder, bassist James Wolfe and drummer Toby Richards in a dingy windowless practice room where they began to painstakingly shape a sound which combined darkly twisting instrumental with a sweetly melodic song-writing nous that belied their age.
The band’s live show is fearsomely tight and effervescently energetic through years of playing together week in, week out since their youth.
