Growing up, the five members of No Island all heeded Bob Seger’s advice; they took those old records off the shelf, and they sat and listened to them. The result, a decade or so later, is a new brand of rock that blurs the lines between genres and generations: Modern Vintage Rock.
Hippies have become hipsters, disco has given way to techno, and Woodstock lives on in Coachella, but through forty years of cultural evolution, that old time rock and roll has stood the test of time. No Island strives to honour that tradition and sing its praises through their own unique voice.
Funky bass lines punch their way through a thunder of drums while rich keyboards and ferocious guitars lay a foundation for dual vocals, soaring harmonies and scorching saxophone. From small-town watering holes to downtown clubs, No Island’s energetic live show never fails to fill a dance floor or bring a crowd to its feet.
Since forming in 2009, the band has found both residence and inspiration in Vancouver’s vibrant music scene. A desire to blend the forward-thinking creativity of today’s indie rock with the timeless appeal of yesterday has kept No Island’s sound focused and their vision strong.
The band released their debut album “Sign of the Times” in March 2011. After touring western Canada in the summer of 2012, No Island released their follow-up CD “The Waiting Game EP” in December 2012. In April 2013, the band released their "Off The Floor" digital EP in advance of a seven-week tour across Canada.
