Antarctic Wastelands is always great at creating those lush, frozen ambient soundscapes that are meant to get lost within. This time around it’s the song, “Into Silence” from the Islands EP that has us in a day dream.

It opens gradually with a lower melody that is instantly captivating. This synth continues to pull us closer and ever so slightly, a wall of ambient swells and distant vocals are then introduced. It has a melancholic undertone which is part of the ep’s theme - the displacement of island communities due to climate change.
