When an artist puts out a self-titled album, it’s quite the statement they’re making. It’s time for the record that epitomises the musician, that is truly representative of their truth. Or they haven’t thought up a good enough pun yet.

Islet have killed two birds with one stone, naming their third album, and first release since 2016’s Liquid Half Moon EP, Eyelet. This full-length record feels more like a glimpse into the psychedelic minds behind the Welsh trippy-pop trio. Chiming, tranquil beats are a backdrop to overwhelmingly empowering content; Geese explores the meandering trail of human migration both present and ancestral, while Good Grief serves as a testament to women’s resilience. Eyelet can take you on a sonic journey, and you don’t even have to leave your chair.
