This is massive. “Islands”, the new collaboration by singer-songwriter Michael Lanza and rapper Chow Mane, is an excellent pop/hip-hop hybrid. Lanza’s love for rap and Mane’s pop-inflected off-kilter delivery makes the Bay Area-native artists a dynamic pair — and this song benefits from that.
Produced by Jared Keh, “Islands” is melodic, rhythmic and, generally, infectious. Equally enthralling is the stunning music video directed by Nanako Fukui & Yuito Kimura.
