With their highly-anticipated new album set to land later this year, Low Island have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Kid Gloves' comes accompanied by a stunning self-directed new video, and follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Can't Forget' in previewing their sophomore LP 'Life In Miniature', which is out on the 4th November via their own Emotional Interference imprint.
Speaking about the new offering, the band said, “‘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”.
