They are all songs we’ve been slaving over and listening to pretty much on repeat since we first came together as Chain Of Islands. Being able to put them side to side to curate an album listening experience honestly never gets old and we’re so proud to be able to share this with all of the people who have listened so far and are yet to jam along with us. Now we just need to get on stage and vibe with the family!” – Chain of Islands
