Biography

The Society Islands is the musical project of Cologne, Germany-based composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist Boris Rogowski. The Society Islands were founded in 2006, shortly before the release of their debut album “Kiss & Tell” (until then Rogowski had already recorded a dozen of albums and EPs under the moniker M.D. which may or may not be released at a later point in time). The music of The Society Islands oscillates between Neo-Folk, chamber music and Indie Rock and is further characterized by stylistic shifts and ominous undertones.

Their sophomore album, “Last Hero of the Western World”, a collection of songs about righteous hitwomen, lovers caught in family feuds, epiphenomenalism, apocalypse and the Great Ennui, will be released by the label TRC on February 19th 2010.

    Continued...The Society Islands vocals are great and very fitting and the music runs the gamut from folk to progressive rock as far as I'm concerned and I'm a fan from way back of folks like Yes and the lesser known band Seventh Wave. Anyway, I dig the the tunes.
