about

The follow up album to 2018’s Islands part 1, Islands part 2 serves to complement and expand on No Mono’s haunting debut. This iteration sees percussion take on a bigger role. The BPMs are increased and the energy at times borders on frantic, but there’s also a swagger.
Where part 1 relished in being a little blurry around the edges, suspending the listener in an unsettling soundscape, part 2 pulls into jarring focus.
Percussion is used to bewilder - at times frantic, scattered or glitchy. Snowdon’s vocals are less tender, as he battles to find connection and empathy. Yet despite the eerie energy, there is always an alien beauty to the whole, and ultimately a faith in keeping hope.
