Port Isla - Steamroller

It really doesn't seem like a year since your humble captain last set sail for Port Isla, but that would appear to be the case. The Norwich four-piece have impressed both TMB and many others blogs with their raucous folk sound, and with an upcoming tour in support of George Ezra in June (as well as a slot at this year's Great Escape Festival next month), the band have announced the release of their debut E.P.

The title track, "Steamroller", has just been unveiled, and if you hadn't fallen for the band before now, then you'll most definitely done so by the time the song ends. It's their most accessible song to-date (not that their past material wasn't, mind you), with its massive choruses and upbeat tempo. The band seem to have injected a little bit of Bruce Springsteen and third album Noah & The Whale into their folksy sound, giving them an anthemic quality that had only been hinted at before now.

"Steamroller" will be released on April 28th.
