“Desert Island” is a beautiful romance-hinged piece by Canadian-Norwegian singer-songwriting duo Shandel & Samuels. It’s the lead single from the outfit’s debut EP, Castaway (which dropped on May 29th). It is a cohesive folk-pop amalgam written about two lovers’ yearning to escape to a secluded island. The track arrived accompanied by a video shot on location in Malaga, Spain and directed by group member Laila Samuels.
Castaway was recorded by American DJ and producer Simonne Jones and German producer Marcus Brosch. Other tracks on the EP include “Gold”, Heroine” and “One Day at a Time”.
The duo consists of Laila Samuels (Norway) and Jonas Shandel (Canada). Connect with them on Instagram.
