Low Island are streaming their new EP 'Shut Out The Sun' in full

Low Island have shared their new EP 'Shut Out The Sun' in full.

With a title inspired by Michael Zielenziger’s book Shutting Out the Sun, which describes the experiences of the Japanese Hikikomori, the new release arrives ahead of their upcoming headline tour.

“The Hikikomori represent one extreme response to modern anxiety," the band explain. "Another is escapism, and for us, Shut Out the Sun is evocative of both; alone in your bedroom or immersed in the club, both private and communal. It’s a duality that we’re often trying to convey in our music by setting these subjects against instrumentals that draw strongly upon dance music.”

The band's tour kicks off this week and features a multi-arts showcase at London's Electrowerkz on 6th November. Catch them live at the following, and check out 'Shut Out The Sun' after the jump.
