After returning to deliver their comeback singles 'Calling Out' and 'Hummingbird', their first songs in 4 years, IS TROPICAL are back once again with another brand new effort.
The new track 'Spiritual Head' marks their first piece of new material so far this year, and is set to appear on their forthcoming new album 'Cola Spirit', which is set to be announced soon.
Speaking about the new offering, the band said, "We started making this album very organically. We had a little hiatus after our previous record and hadn’t really discussed making new music. We went into a little DIY London studio with friend and producer JP Sancho and just started messing around. We weren’t after a particular sound at all, and have always loved the fact our music floats from one genre to another and always ends up sounding like IS TROPICAL. Naturally, after having some time off, we expelled some energy with a few heavier songs, then one night we set up a piano running through some delay pedals and started playing a pretty little piano loop. It was completely different to anything else we had ever written, but it was emotive and infectious. Kirstie started singing over the top about getting ‘Spiritual Head’. It was a bit of a joke at first, about someone going down on her and ‘the boy’ being super shy. I guess it was a dig at the macho, male bravado that guys always tend to use when talking about sex, and putting power back in the hands of women. The song has a slow steady build and a climactic ending which is pretty fitting for the subject matter".
