About Islands' Arm's Way

Islands' Anti- Records debut Arm's Way finds the young, critically-acclaimed Montreal sextet heading in a surprising new direction. Their 2006 release, Return to the Sea, was heralded as a stunning work of impulsive outbursts and emotional explorations. Arm's Way sees the band naturally evolving to a more lavish, yet centered, sound that showcases songwriter Nick Thorburn's astounding talent. Prefix Magazine has called him "an extraordinary songwriter." With Ryan Hadlock (Blonde Redhead, Stephen Malkmus) as co-producer, Island's Arm's Way opens the door to a sprawling symphonic world that fans and critics have been looking for.
