In 2017, their first record After Hours, named as a testament to how they would meet up in the evenings in order to escape from studies to practice, was released with positive reviews and featured on BBC Introducing in Nottingham. It was recorded in Horley, Surrey over the course of six days with help from Andrew Cheeseman, a student and friend at BIMM Brighton.
The Long Islands are now steadily building profile through their energetic and uniquely composed live sets. The band are currently working on new music and plan to record in early 2019.
Daniel Lyons, lead guitarist and vocalist; Matthew Kempa, Drums and backing vocalist and Rhys Thomas, bass, synth, backing vocalist and occasional second guitarist comprise the three members of the band.
