FEATURED SONG: “Creeper” – Islands.

April 15, 2009 Leave a comment

“Creeper.” It’s become my generation’s slang term of choice, meaning someone who is a stalker or just generally creepy. I’ll admit to overusing it, because it’s just so gosh darn applicable. But in this case, “Creeper” means an intensely catchy song by Islands.


Islands is an indie rock band based in Montreal, Quebec. Their sound has been described as “some dancehall influences, some calypso” and being “more diverse and sprawling and ambitious” than others. (wikipedia)
I personally would describe them, and this song in particular, as being utterly danceable. I’m not sure if they’re making fun of our cultural lexicon or simply taking part, but either way I’m happy.
