Low Island share New Track, ‘Kid Gloves’

Earlier this summer Oxford electronic-pop quartet Low Island announced their sophomore album Life In Miniature for November 4th via their own label Emotional Interference. Newly confirmed to support Hot Chip at the iconic Brixton Academy on September 24th, the band will first reveal the next single, ‘Kid Gloves’

Speaking ahead of their latest release, the group explained: “‘Kid Gloves’ is a love song to childhood and to ‘home’, whatever or wherever that may be. Like so much of the new record, it’s about life’s pushes and pulls: how leaving home can mark a new and exciting chapter in our lives, but necessarily involves leaving a part of our childhood behind; how falling in love can make us feel more distant from our friends, or how just generally we are so often confronted with situations that pull our emotions in opposing directions. I’m obsessed with this line in Future Islands’ ‘Seasons’ where Sam T Herring says ‘when people change, they gain a piece, but they lose one too.’ There is both such a cruelty and beauty in that, and Kid Gloves tries to capture that feeling and provide reassurance: home is there. you are still you. there’s still time. life is good:.
