Islands/Steady Holiday/Stems

When: Wed., Oct. 26, 8:30 p.m. 2016

Last year, Islands released Should I Remain Here, at Sea?, which connected back to the band’s 2006 debut, Return to the Sea. The two albums work very well together, despite being separated by nearly a decade and more than a handful of shakeups in the band’s history. On the later album, frontman Nick Diamonds keeps his finger on the pulse of quirky, melodic indie rock (with a touch of hip-hop sensibilities for good measure). Once again, he and the band prove deft at their use of dynamics and snappy hooks; it’s at once both fun and softly reflective. Expect the band to hit all corners of the discography tonight. (Sandy)
