As Islandeer, Christian Jansen (drums, guitars, keys) and Michael Garcia (vocals, guitars, keys) offer a whole world of sound. Their herald is a sparkling supernova of single, 'Momento'.
Swirling textures, voluptuous swells of bass and serrated guitar-jangles, all congeal into an epic psychedelic thrall wherein a tale of unrequited love unspools.
In an official release, the following is stated about 'Momento's' genesis: "You begin to notice everything about this thing or person, and time freezes regardless of the atmosphere or situation. Then comes rejection, which often happens when your attraction goes unnoticed. A strong yearning for reciprocation starts bubbling".
The special thing about this song is that the music defies the narrative: Even though feelings are one-sided and connections aren't made, the sheer scale of the sonics furnishes a victorious atmosphere.
