Suzi Island is a duo from Brighton made up of two 17 year olds. ‘Show Me the Way’ is a super catchy tune and I was surprised that it was a debut single of a such a young band. I love the bass in the song and the wise lyrics. I would like to see this ‘Show Me the Way’ in the charts right NOW!
Suzi Island, a duo from Brighton release their debut single produced and mixed by Pete Robertson of the Vaccines. It’s a driving, bass-heavy anthem and the first single from the alternative guitar band. It follows on from their packed-out debut show at The Green Door Store in January.
Following in the footsteps of Royal Blood, British Sea Power and most recently the likes of Yonaka & Dream Wife, Suzi Island are the latest band to form in the breezy seaside town of Brighton, England. Despite being only 19 yrs old, playing music is nothing new for Hugh Reilly-Smith and Matthew Carter. Suzi Island represents childhood friendship and a move away from home to Brighton, to study music. The two 19 year olds grew up together in Andover, playing in bands all their teenage lives. That was the journey and Suzi Island has always been the destination.
They are joined on stage by Carlie Randall-Smith and Harvey Norman, and alongside playing the music, they all live together too. With lyrics based on the ‘Real Life’, (the title of one of their future singles) Suzi Island manage to capture the inspiration within their daily lives. This is what Suzi Island is about: Living life, finding your way, discovery and fun.
Currently working on more music with Pete of The Vaccines fame, and Larry Hibbit who has worked on breakthrough records from Nothing But Thieves and Sundara Karma. Suzi Island have a packed 2018 with several more singles due before the years out and numerous live dates.
