Song: The Verve
Isla are an Alternative Rock band formed in the early months of 2018, after meeting at University in the vibrant city of Brighton. The band consists of Ed Brown (Lead Vocal and Guitar), Andy Adams (Bass) and Alex Woodward (Drums) who individually have a wide range of influences, but collectively take inspiration from the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Foals and Nothing But Thieves. Isla blend elements of conventional rock and indie guitar riffs to create atmospheric and emotional ambience.
In Autumn 2018, Isla released their Debut EP ‘Boundaries’, which showcased the beginning of intertwining influences. The 4 track EP has achieved over 5,000 streams collectively and continues to grow. Following the release, Isla sold-out their Debut EP Release Show at the much loved Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar in Brighton. ‘Boundaries’ has enabled Isla to venture from Brighton and perform across Southern England, supporting acts such as Saltwater Sun and Wyldest.
Following a rebrand, the band are focused on writing heavier material ready for big projects in 2019. Isla have been working vigorously on recording ready to kickstart their new chapter, with their newest single titled ‘The Verve’ due Friday 5th April.
