After wrapping The Journey II tour across the nation and releasing his emotional Start Again EP, Seven Lions returns with a fresh new collaboration. The melodic dubstep champion joins forces with Wooli and Trivecta to create a galactic bass single that drips with passion. “Island” features endearing vocals by rising artist Nevve, and was released via Ophelia Records.
“Island” Will Take You Through a Roller Coaster of Sensations.
The song gently opens with Trivecta’s soft guitar melody and whisks of airy synths that float around Nevve’s lush verses. Nevve describes the temptation to connect with a lover who seems far gone in the relationship, however she’s not letting go.
“But I know it’s not over
Feel the static, I can feel you getting closer
Send a flare to light the way,
Way onto your island.”
The verse rapidly grows with Trivecta’s trance-like build that crashes into a melodious wave. Once you hear that first drop you know it’s Seven Lions and his signature touch of bass-heavy euphoria. Soon after Wooli’s massive riddim-heavy wubs kick in to release havoc. “Island” is full of loops and turns to unveil an assortment of feeling and emotion you never knew you could embrace in a matter of four minutes. The thing that makes Seven Lions’ songs so memorable is this combination of dark, hard-hitting punches mixed with enchanting melodies that weave through metaphorical lyricism.
