Is Tropical release their second album ‘I’m Leaving’ today on French record label, Kitsuné.
Whilst racking up enough hedonistic experiences to last a lifetime, Is Tropical have been busy learning some important musical lessons: namely, that 100mph craziness isn’t necessarily all you need to make a record. ‘I’m Leaving’ marks itself out as a distinct progression from its predecessor. Produced by seasoned pro and friend of the band Luke Smith (Depeche Mode, Foals), ‘Dancing Anymore’ features a duet between Gary and his girlfriend – one of many tracks on the record that, again for the first time, feature a female vocal (the rest are provided by Crystal Fighters’ singer Ellie Fletcher).
