Stranded - Ex-Isles


“Devlin’s lulling baritone is a show-stopper, while Joys’ balmy arrangements offer up symphonic soundworlds that curveball across 35 minutes” The Quietus

“One of the strongest debuts from an Irish act in recent memory” The Thin Air

“Seriously smart, beautiful audacious avant-pop.” NARC Magazine

Ex-Isles is a new collaboration between Belfast based singer-songwriter Peter Devlin and composer James Joys. Having worked together on various projects, the pair decided to explore their distinctive take on pop music on their return to Belfast, after 15 years. The result is ‘Luxury Mass’; their debut album, swooning with darkness and humour, filled with harmonic twists, lyrical wit, and rhythmic slips, all held together by Devlin’s rich, crooning baritone. Their brooding sound gives a nod to enigmatic pop figures like Scott Walker, David Sylvian, John Grant, ANOHNI, and late-era David Bowie; expertly carried out by Joys’s arrangements and production. Pete and James are currently writing and producing an angrier, darker follow-up to Luxury Mass, due in 2019.
