Islands (2:40)

Cover of xx

From xx and 8 other releases

Singer Romy told The Sun : “I love ‘Islands’ because I found it quite hard to write something more upbeat and light-hearted. We were into this calypso drumming beat and asked Jamie [beats/production] if he could help with those sort of sounds like bongos. That’s what makes that song so special.” (Source Islands Songfacts).
