Delivering an unexpected, yet delightful sound, newcomer I'm An Island has premiered his new song with us today, entitled "iamurhome". I'm An Island is a project by J. Gardner, a multi-instrumentalist that recently moved from New Orleans to Nashville and while in the Music City he wrote his entire forthcoming debut EP.
Easing into the groove, a softly plucked guitar introduces the tone to "iamurhome", a settling, homey feeling that is carried throughout. Once Gardner's voice kicks in, he takes the spotlight with a distinct sound that intrigues and can at times be reminiscent, stylistically of early Youth Lagoon. As Gardner's voice carries the forefront, layered guitars come together to create a surf rock vibe that blends with the vocals to create an overall sound that will draw you in.
