MP3 At 3PM: Italian Japanese

The newest single from SoCal’s Italian Japanese is a dejected anthem that tells the sad story of being in love but realizing things aren’t meant to be. “Two Islands” has a warm, hazy layer on top, fervent vocals and a solid indie-rock base that’s incredibly easy to listen to. “It’s a relationship song about being in love with someone and then realizing that you’re basically living on two different islands and there’s no way this is going to work,” says frontman Allen Nicholas. “It’s coming to the realization that this person that you want to be with, it’s impossible, it’s just not going to work out.” Download “Two Islands” below.
