19 yr olds Hugh Reilly-Smith & Matthew Carter, aka, Suzi Island, have released the video for their debut single ‘Show Me The Way’ produced and mixed by Pete Robertson of the Vaccines.
The video shot on their home turf, on the south coast of England, harks perfectly back to infectious indie greats of the MTV generation and shows a reinvention of this era but for a new world, and the Suzi Island way. Watch it below!
The band were welcomed to the music scene via a packed-out debut show at The Green Door Store in January, having generated followers from previous bands Outside Central and HUMA. Following in the footsteps of Royal Blood, British Sea Power and most recently the likes of Yonaka & Dream Wife, Suzi Island are the latest band to form in the breezy seaside town of Brighton, England.
Playing music is nothing new for the pair . Hugh & Matt grew up together in Andover , playing in bands all their teenage lives. That was the journey and Suzi Island has always been the destination. They are joined on stage by Carlie Randall-Smith and Harvey Norman, and alongside playing the music, they all live together too.
Suzi Island is about: Living life, ﬁnding your way, discovery and fun.
Currently working on more music with Pete of The Vaccines fame, and Larry Hibbit who has worked on breakthrough records from Nothing But Thieves and Sundara Karma. Suzi Island have a packed 2018 with several more singles due before the years out and numerous live dates.
