Additional Information

On the first track from Islands’ new album—the winsome, tropicalia-inflected “Wave Forms”—front man
Nick Thorburn opens the record by singing, “I won’t ride another wave and I won’t write another word
after today.” In light of the rest of the album, the statement is both an admonition and a kind of warning.
Ski Mask, the band’s fifth album, is equal parts beauty and venom—an album that percolates with the
kind of polymorphous pop and hooky, left-of-center rock songs that have long been the band’s stock and
trade. This time around, however, the artful indie-pop comes with a decidedly melancholy punch.
