From time to time you need to bring your head above the water; take that cold breath of air and pause. Leave the stresses of daily life and do something completely different. Wipe away the sweat of monotony. Such is the essence of “A Place You Like” by ISLAND, a London-based mellow pop-rock quartet. Skilfully combining gentle vocals with a simple guitar riff this record symbolises a better place – a hidden oasis in which an escape may be found. Four and a half minutes of tranquility.
