The Sometimes Island is vocalist and producer Matt Blankenship Jr. The band formed in 2016, and recorded and released Bad People EP in 2017. Known for an energetic live show, the band is a solo performance outfit that maintains a revolving cast of Los Angeles musicians and collaborators.
The dreamy, beat-driven synth pop sound is perfect for fans of Daft Punk, Lauv and Fleet Foxes. Fresh off a west coast tour, The Sometimes Island emerges from the studio with a series of new singles to be released monthly beginning in August 2018. A music video accompanies the first single and a series of tours in summer 2018 will bring what Buzznet calls “the future of synthpop” to the western US and beyond.
