Is Tropical have been on BlackPlastic's radar for a little while now but since recently signing to Kitsune they seem to be picking up momentum.
'South Pacific' is a lovely shoegaze-y number with buzzing melodies and uplifting vocals that feels like running away. Which is appropriate given the video, which has a nice washed out look, basically consists of the band making a raft and sailing away. Kitsune feeling feel like they have dropped the ball lately - hopefully this represents a return to form... Expect to hear big things from Is Tropical in 2011.
'South Pacific' is out on 22 November 2010.
