"Premiere: ISLE - 'Surrender'"

ISLE is a multimedia project from the Scottish borders, comprising of producer Liam John Rutherford and drummer Ben Singer.
Raw pop music with an alternative bent, the duo match infectious, artful hooks against jaunty, jagged percussion.
New cut 'Surrender' emerges this week, and it's a potent introduction from the Scottish duo. ISLE explain:
"'Surrender' is about realising that sometimes it's better just to give up and move on. You're never going to get where or what you want from a certain situation." - CLASH Magazine


Emerging out of the quaint borders of Scotland, indie rock duo ISLE rely on unique heavy-hitting drum arrangements and fuzzed-out hooks to craft a distinct sound that sets them apart from the masses. Producer Liam John Rutherford and drummer Ben Singer have combined their various audiovisual skill sets to orchestrate their debut EP ‘Grey’, a five-track journey that picks and pulls from the worlds of alternative rock, indie pop and left-of-field electronica.

Tracks like “Luna” and “Surrender” lean on intricate drum arrangements, colliding Something Corporate-esque melodies with slick soundscapes reminiscent of The 1975 or Mutemath. On the other hand, ambience and sparse guitars drive emotional tracks like “Instincts” and “01:29”, a dreamy interlude that breaks through the chaos to provide a powerful moment of clarity. One thing’s for sure: these two Scots on-the-rise know exactly what they’re doing, and it’s only a matter of time before the world sits up and catches on to ISLE. -

"Premier: 'Kid' by ISLE"

“Kid is an over-romanticised, Hollywood-esque take on an average day to day event”
We’ve got the exclusive on ISLE’s new single ‘Kid’, ISLE have exciting few months coming up, which will see them performing at this year’s Great Escape festival on the Liberty Music stage on Sat 21st. They have also signed to the same management company as Slaves and Say Lou Lou.
ISLE are multi-medium musicians based in the stark Scottish Borders. Comprising of producer Liam John Rutherford and drummer Ben Singer, ISLE are avid self-producers who partner audio and visuals to create an all-encompassing experience. Emotion-fuelled precision meets epic methodical drums to create raw alt-pop that punches and pulls. - Spindle Magazine


Still working on that hot first release.
