Watch the official Wave Forms music video!

10:48AM 10/29/13

Islands is excited to release their new video for “Wave Forms”. Directed by Strike Anywhere, the beautifully shot video follows Islands as they join a lone roller skater (Cory Zacharia) as he rolls through the streets of Lancaster, California. Zacharia has been a recurring character in Mike Ott’s films, including Littlerock, Pearlblossom Highway and the upcoming Lake Los Angeles. Watch the video here.

Released earlier this year, “Wave Forms” has been hailed as the band’s “most concise and confident singles since Return To The Sea” and one of the highlights of Islands’ latest record Ski Mask. Released in September, Ski Mask is an album that’s equal parts beauty and venom. Percolating with the kind of polymorphous pop and hooky, left-of-center rock songs that have long been the band’s stock and trade, the album has been praised by critics as the band’s most ambitious to date.

Strike Anywhere is a production company and team of directors. Based in Los Angeles and San Francisco, their work includes commercials, feature films, and content for the Web and social media.
