Music by Bergman: Island Hill

It’s been an interesting journey for Island Hill. The trio met on Jeju in South Korea, a volcanic Island that the three musicians serendipitously ended up being on at the same time, despite their disparate backgrounds. During their time together there, they discovered a shared love for psychedelia and electronic musical tendencies, as well as vintage synths and blues-infused guitars.

What results from their shared love and connection is Strangers in Paradise, the threesome’s debut body of work, which celebrates their time spent collectively on the island and is a vibrant melting pot of musical inspirations and stylistic intricacy. A dazzling mixture of ambience and beauty, it’s a highly impactful collection of songs that draws you into the band’s forward thinking sound and showcases the soaring potential of the group.
