Solarstone – “Island”
This summer, Solarstone recorded an album, which served as a sonic storyboard for the first 24hrs of any White Isle trip. Piling poignancy on poignancy and imagery on imagery, the last single to be drawn from it in 2020 is none other than ‘island’ itself. The soundscape-suggestion of the album’s title (and opening) track couldn’t be much clearer. It echoes the inimitable pulse and thrill of arrival over Ibizan airspace, as blue gives way to the beach, sea cedes to sand and rubber greets runway. With a percussive skip to its opening moments’ step, Solarstone underpins ‘island’s wistful guitar lines with coolly grooving and distinctly foot-moving bass. Flute float and other evocative string-strummed instruments give it flight before the majesty of its mainline brings the final encapsulation of its island-arrival theme.
