Reliably informed

Described by the duo’s lead vocalist and songwriter Maria Winter as a love song to Lindisfarne, this is exactly how Little Island Dream translates. Winter’s voice and intentions are pure, singing of the safety and magic of this small place and its mind-blowing sunsets. “It’s the simple things that mean the most” Maria sings, and the philosophy certainly works in the song, as the duo’s feelings for Lindisfarne wouldn’t have come across half as well in a big-production piece.

There are no overdone echoes or lengthy instrumentals here: just a guitar and harmonies, and an honestly and effortlessly penned song, talking about a place that does most of the speaking for itself.
