Physical: 'Islands'

Wellington duo Physical have just released their debut single, and it’s a lush electronic track which has been building some good buzz on the blogosphere.

Members Nik Brinkman (formerly known as Junica) and Julia Parr (from Black City Lights) have teamed up, and this looks like the start of a promising project.

‘Islands’, which premiered over on NYLON, covers the theme of drifting apart from someone you’ve become close to.

Parr explains the situation that inspired the song: “We went on a lush island getaway together, but when we settled back into real life, I started to feel like I was tying her down to one place. [Nik and I] wanted the track to evoke that floating feeling of being in paradise, but with an unsteadiness, the feeling in the pit of your stomach that something isn’t right.”

The song has also been given a remix by LA producer Dntel, who is one-half of electronic duo The Postal Service.
