With “Haunted Paradise” and “Tonight” still buzzing, Black Atlass completes his trilogy of unique, bewitching singles on Fool’s Gold by dropping the pulsing new cut “Island Love.” Every BA track is a showcase for Alex Fleming’s otherworldly falsetto and emotive songwriting, but “Island Love” shows off an ambitious new side. Premeired on T Mag, minimal synths and a restrained (yet impossibly funky) rhythm track crash into an airborne, horn-driven hook that’s impossible to shake. “Don’t you hide away for too long…” This is Black Atlass at his biggest. Listen to “Island Love” here.
