On the strength of their 2014 EP I’m Afraid of My Brain, Islands & Tigers are embarking on a month-long West Coast tour. Their fourth EP effort is an escape from the real world into a land where spring break lasts forever, as Harmony Korine can only hope. The lyrical themes are typical to the surf genre, reflecting on the past and lovebird relationships, and generally longing for “the way things used be.” Sun-soaked and saltwater-drenched, I’m Afraid of My Brain is a love letter to the greatness of surf’s past and its future promise. Despite their relatively young age, the Islands & Tigers kids have successfully tapped into a genre as timeless as sacred memories of family beach vacations. With The Sour Notes, Tides.
