From Young Islands
Nashville based synthpop band Young Islands was the creation of Josh Kaltenbach, Stephen Earnest, and David O. Ramirez. It began in early 2012 when the trio found themselves playing music together and wanted to take it further. They discovered they had a similar vision, and that was to make crowds move and dance. Recording began soon after and playing live shows then followed. Their concerts are intense, energetic, entertaining, and downright fun! Musical influences include Passion Pit, Stange Talk, M83, Miike Snow, and lots of 1980's synthpop.
