Described by some as "heavy wave," Australian trio Five Island Drive have a sound that is not easy to peg down by a single genre tag, and that's certainly by design.
Incorporating elements of everything from radio-ready pop to modern metalcore to many points in between, Five Island Drive have been building quite the buzz Down Under with their previous singles, "The Record" and "Spite Suicide."
Keeping up that energy, the band is dropping their fervent third single, "Lost Cosmonauts," which was self-produced and mixed by band member Kim Quint and mastered by Grant Berry (Stand Atlantic, Boston Manor).
The music video for the track was directed by Kim and Five Island Drive vocalist Frankie Jean, and filmed by Susan Lumsdon at Sydney Props Studios on Gadigal and Wangal land of the Eora Nation. The clip pays homage to The Mighty Boosh, SpongeBob SquarePants, Madagascar, and Castaway, to name a few.
Check out the wild vibes below:
Five Island Drive vocalist Frankie Jean said the following about the track:
"'Lost Cosmonauts' is a song about the stark change in friendship circles that can sometimes come after dramatic personal growth. In order to move forward emotionally, the hardest decisions to make can be those that move you away from people who no longer share your core beliefs."
The Lost Cosmonauts single will be available worldwide on Friday, June 17.
