7" version. This is a 7" release by NYC's The Isles (Benjamin Haberland, Chris Bordeaux, Andrew Geller, Tim McCoy). It's been a good stretch of success for the New York foursome, with their debut album Perfumed Lands ("A slow burn album for all seasons..." (8/10) --NME) prompting positive reviews, and so it's no surprise they want to extend it for as long as possible. The new single "Summer Loans" has an unmistakably East Coast groove but such an intrinsically familiar tapestry of woven guitar parts and vocal melody, you'll swear you've been getting up to dance to it for the last ten years. Lovingly put together in their self-made studio, Summer Loans manages to capture the echo of the great New York outdoors as well as the claustrophobia of the great New York sprawl. They're a curious distillation of Britpop and East Coast punk and honorary Mancunians in spirit and sound.
