Low Island’s new album, If You Could Have It All Again, opens with a pulsating electronic note, a stripped-back atmospheric soundscape building and echoing, carrying a high lilting vocal until it meets with a chaotic end. A more rhythmic, upbeat, electronic dance pop sound takes over. Occasional bursts of distortion emanate on tracks, such as What Do You Stand For, ramping up with electronic patterns and noise over a dance beat.

There are moments of gentle beauty too, In Your Arms takes you on a surreal smoke-veiled trip, pulsating notes slipping in and out of tune, driving the song onwards. Lyrics floating above, drifting. An album of contrasts, from gentle to driven, and a worthy debut.
