ISLAND are an alternative rock band from London formed of vocalist Rollo Doherty, guitarist Jack Raeder, bassist James Wolfe and drummer Toby Richards.
After years of playing together in bedrooms and dingy London studios in a blend of different line-ups, they found themselves in Oxford, where ISLAND was formed and a new sound was found. ISLAND have firmly established themselves as one of the UK's most exciting live bands having toured across the UK, Europe and North America, including performances at SXSW, headlining the BBC Introducing stage at Reading & Leeds, and a sold-out show at the prestigious Koko in their hometown.
The band released their critically acclaimed debut album 'Feels Like Air' in 2018, inspired by their extensive time on the road, followed up by the 2019 EP ‘When We’re Still’.
The band are back in 2021 with new music via Frenchkiss Records. Recorded in semi-locked down London last summer, ISLAND's latest releases see the band relinquish their traditional self-production duties to collaborate with producer Mikko Gordon (Thom Yorke), kicking off with 'Octopus’, 'Everyone's The Same' & ‘My Brother’ - with much more on the way soon!
Globally-renowned DJ, producer, activist, fashion icon: the one, the only, the inimitable Honey Dijon will headline the launch party for SWG3's radical new BODYHEAT system during COP26!
His songs range from an ode to having a sub par night out to a call to arms against the fascists in our midst! Don't miss Declan Welsh and the Decadent West at SWG3 Glasgow on 22nd November!
Your favourite movie night is back! Enjoy a line-up of feel-good films and movie classics plus a meal, dessert and drink, all set up socially distanced style in the stunning Grand Ballroom at Sloans!
