YOU GOTTA SEE THIS: “This Is Not A Song” by Islands

December 26. 2011 | By Katie

Sometimes simple is better. That’s certainly the case with Islands’ “This Is Not A Song,” in which the band plays somberly without frills or gimmicks. Because, despite the paradoxical title, it is a song–a lovely, plaintive ode to lost love; it doesn’t need anything fancy to suck you in.
