'Native To', produced by the band with Jimmy Robertson and mixed by Lifelike, features twelve new tracks including the recent single 'South Pacific' and the forthcoming new release 'The Greeks'. Effortlessly swooping from raw pop anthems to lo-fi dance songs with fantastic results, as well as the two singles other standouts include 'Take My Chances', 'Lies' and 'Think We're Alone'. Formed in London, the Is Tropical line up of Gary Barber (Vocals / Guitar / keys), Simon Milner (Vocals / Guitars / Keys) and Dominic Apa (Drums & Programming) first came to international attention with the release of their debut single 'When O' When' on Hit Club Records in January 2010. Produced by Al Al Al (The Big Pink / Klaxons), the single, together with their spectral live shows, saw the band attract the attention of fans and critics alike. They soon signed to French music and fashion label Kitsun? (Digitalism/Two Door Cinema Club) and released there second single 'South Pacific' in November 2010. Around this time Is Tropical toured the UK and Europe as special guests of Klaxons, the Big Pink and Mystery Jets and have subsequently grown into a stunning live act. Taking to the stage in their trademark masks, and cloaked by self-made video projections, they improvise constantly changing soundscapes brilliantly combing a late night strobe club show with infectious, sing along pop songs.
