It’s Christmas eve but nonetheless we’re still relentless at Strong Island Recordings planning and scheduling releases ready for the new year. It’s been a great end to 2014 with the opening of the new shop and also the release of Aussie psych-pop outfit Violet Swells with ‘Here Comes Yesterday‘ which has been heavily pushed by Triple J and is also in the list for a possible Triple J Hottest 100 of the Year which you can vote for here. Our next release though comes from a little closer to home, kind of, being Glaswegian dreampop/shoegaze outfit Life Model with the single ‘Lilt’ which will be available via digital download from 2nd February 2015. It’s a gorgeous dreampop/shoegaze gem laced in whirling guitars and enchanting and ethereal vocals. We can’t wait for the release as we’ve been chatting to the guys for a long while about a release so it’s an early Christmas present for us. Anyway we hope you enjoy and thank you for the continued support of our little label. Have a great Christmas from all of us at Strong Island Recordings.
