Islands In Concert

Islands perform live
Islands perform live

Over the course of four albums, the Montreal indie-pop band Islands has developed a personal, soulful breed of art-rock. The group — which includes members of the broken-up and beloved lo-fi rock band The Unicorns — has honed its live act over the course of seven years of touring. Islands' instrumentation is deep but never overdone, while frontman Nicholas Throburn's vocals sound soulful but restrained; he's expressive, but he never lets his lyricism be obscured.

Islands' most recent album, A Sleep & A Forgetting, is out now. Return to this page at noon ET Friday to hear the band perform live at WXPN's World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.
