Fionn Regan Returns With New Jewel ‘Islands’

A calming summer-fest statement...

Stellar songwriter Fionn Regan returns with new jewel ‘Islands’.

Out now, the song is his first piece of new material since 2019’s ‘Cala’, and it was dreamed up by the Mediterranean. Written during a stay in Mallorca, Fionn Regan found inspiration in the tides, watching the waves lap into the beach.

There’s a relaxing summer energy to ‘Islands’, the softly meditative quality echoed in his fragrant use of melody. Fionn adds a perfume-esque touch to the song, something almost corporeal yet tangible on each and every note.

“When I wrote the song it was like there was something cosmic about it, because it doesn’t sound like my other songs” says Regan. “I felt like it was almost a gift from The Beatles or whatever wellspring they drew on. I remember being in Mallorca and thinking, ‘Were The Beatles ever here?’ Not that I’m saying it’s on their level but it has some sort of cosmic flow to it.”

Out now on Nettwerk, the song comes equipped with news of his Before The Avalanche tour – six live dates in Ireland, plus a headline London show at St Pancras Old Church.
